Časoris is an award winning online newspaper for children.
Our goal is to inform, to guide, and to inspire.
As a media for children and young people we provide timely, relevant news articles on current affairs for children and young people, teachers in the classroom and parents at home.
We believe in unbiased, accurate and ethical journalism for children and young people and by children and young people. Without quality journalism, there is no democracy nor freedom.
Časoris 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, copyeditors, 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 and current affairs, 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.
In 2020, it received a grant from Internews, an international nonprofit organisation, via its Information Saves Lives: Rapid Response Fund. Internews empowers people worldwide with the trustworthy, high-quality news and information they need to make informed decisions, participate in their communities, and hold power to account.
Časoris is dedicated to encouraging a supportive and inclusive culture amongst the whole workforce. It is within our best interest to promote diversity and eliminate discrimination in the workplace. Therefore, Časoris has signed the Diversity Charter of Slovenia, and the editor Sonja Merljak Zdovc is also one of the Slovenian diversity ambassadors.
