Časoris is an award winning online newspaper for children.
It provides timely, relevant news articles for children, teachers in the classroom and parents at home.
It was created in April of 2015 – in the aftermath of the January’s terrorist attack on Charlie Hebdo in Paris.
At the time, many parents were wondering how to explain what happened to their children.
An article about how a French newspaper for children did just that reminded us that we have no such medium for children and their parents in Slovenia and it encouraged us to launch Časoris.
Časoris is published by Časoris, Information and Education Institute. It is edited by Sonja Merljak Zdovc, and a team of journalists, teachers and other professionals contributes regularly. Additionally, children share their stories in a special section.
We strongly believe that children can and want to understand the news if it is put in context for them and presented in kids-friendly language.
With Časoris we’re trying to help them to understand the news, to critically think about what they’re reading, and to apply their knowledge to the real world.
Every article is accompanied by questions for additional reflection and a glossary.
In a special section we also publish additional information for parents and teachers.
In 2019, Časoris became a finalist of the first European Media Literacy Award. Additionally, its project Stories of Children from around the World won both the Intercultural Achievement Award in the media category, as well as the Clarinet Project in the Web and Social Media category.
