DAY 1 - OPENING CEREMONY
Today at Karlstad University, was the first time delegates, ministers and lecturers came together for the opening ceremony of the World Summit on Media for Children and Youth.
Mixed in with speeches on the most recent developments on children's media were cultural performances from the local Swedish young people.
Amongst those joining the world leaders on media on centre stage was the UKYMC's very own Uma Akther who, in an inspiring speech, introduced our council and our aims for the Summit.
Tomorrow we will be beginning a Global Youth Media Council sessions and trying to come up with a Global Youth Charter with other young people who have travelled from all over the world. Exciting times ahead!
