“We wished that the professionals of childhood who composed this committee of experts initially be joined by creators of programs and contents audio-visual dedicated to the children and to the teenagers, numericians, and the neuroscientifiques ones in order to better accompany us in our work by futurology as regards protection by the young public. To adapt the regulation and the protection of the minors to the modes of audio-visual consumption which are theirs is a major concern of the Council. ”, points out Carole Bienaimé Besse, member of the CSA and president of the Public Young working group.
