Read Last Year’s Special Edition on World Press Freedom Day 23


Last year, ChildPress reporters Mehrzad and Darryl went to World Press Freedom Day in New York. They reported on this UNESCO event from the United Nations headquarters.

They interviewed many different people, from the top people of UNESCO, UNEP and other UN organizations, to a taxi driver originally from Ghana and a woman they met on the subway who wants to do something about food waste.

UNESCO assistant director-general Tawfik Jelassi admitted that young people are not sufficiently involved in World Press Freedom Day and that they want to do better for the 2024 event.

This year Mehrzad and Lars are in Santiago, Chile for World Press Freedom Day 2024 to report and see for example Mr. Jelassi who has involved young people more.
