    These young generations are also becoming more conscious of the world they live in, and brands and media have a role to play to address issues important to society in order to earn their engagement. With new technology around every corner, including direct-to-consumer models hitting the market every day, who will meet these challenges and emerge as the new power players in the global kids content space?
