Bringing government and the publishing sector closer
FICCI’s Publishing Committee is organizing a program ‘Scrapbook – Children’s Publishing Conclave’ on 19 August at FICCI, New Delhi to support the mandate in K-12 publishing space.
The Publishing Committee looks after various policy- and trade-related issues like educational publishing, creation of book reading culture, copyright awareness, trade promotion through international book fairs and more.
The initiative has been taken to address the policy concerns and to bring forward the soft advocacy between government and the publishing sector (print and digital) to work in tandem for providing quality and innovative content for children. Under the Right to Education policy, the government’s focus is to provide quality content and teaching methodology to the children to enhance the learning outcome. The program will bring together stakeholders from the K-12 publishing sector including government, state education boards, publishers, content creators, digital disruptors, animators, illustrators, schools, and teachers, to ideate, debate and explore cooperation between policy makers, schools and industry.
There are two different tracks in the program one for the industry, which relates to business and policy issues, and the other for children (3rd – 7th grades).
