CAMP©-Children As Media Producers is a Participatory Media initiative of the UNESCO Chair at the Department of Communication, University of Hyderabad.

Among other things, the basic premises of CAMP include:

·  Children must be seen as producers and contributors of information and not only as consumers.
· Community media can play an important role in strengthening cultural rights, and in particular, the rights of linguistic and cultural minorities, and indigenous peoples by providing access to the means of communication.
·  Access to the means of communication must be supplemented by education and training to assist a critical understanding of the media and to enable children to develop their media and communication skills.
