The presidential spokeswoman, Gabriela Cerruti, said this Sunday that Tecnópolis “changed the way of sharing culture, sharing, and education”during an interview with the members of the Council of Boys and Girls of the Pakapaka channel, who requested changes in the programming of that signal and the development of new, much more inclusive characters.

Within the framework of the “Children’s Weekend” that is celebrated in the mega exhibition of art, science and technology, Cerruti highlighted to the members of the Pakapaka Council the role played by the park, located in the Buenos Aires town of Vicente López, which, he considered, “changed the way of sharing culture, of sharing, and of education”.

He also highlighted the role that the Pakapaka channel had in changing the way of making “animations in an alternative way to the traditional.”

After the interview, the boys and girls asked the presidential spokesperson for changes in programming and the development of new, much more inclusive characters.

“The boys of the Pakapaka Council must rethink how people are represented in advertisements, cinema and networks“, they pointed out.

Among the topics that were mentioned the most was the inclusion of more characters belonging to other ethnic groups or religions.

In turn, they asked for a greater representation of the LGBTQI+ collective in the characters, as well as a change in the perception of the role of women in cartoons.

“It offends us, it bores us, it saddens us, and it annoys us not to see these characters who also provoke emotions represented in the media,” they said.

“These kids promote and want a different type of public television where all childhoods are represented,” he stressed.

Meanwhile, the director of Pakapaka, Cielo Salviolo, highlighted the innovative work of the Council and said that “this is a unique experience in the world” because “no other world television channel has one.”

During the interview, Cerruti said that when she was a girl “she had planned to study aeronautical engineering” in order to “get to NASA”, during an interview with the representatives of the Council of Boys and Girls of Pakapaka in Tecnópolis, who asked her about her work and his beginnings in journalism.

After 3:30 p.m., Lucía, Chano and Sofía, three members of the Council created two years ago, asked the presidential spokeswoman about her beginnings in journalism, who remarked that “she wanted to be an astronaut.”

“When I was a girl I planned to study aeronautical engineering and I wanted to study at the Balseiro Institute to be able to get to NASA, but that changed in 1982 when I was entering Physics and spent the Falklands War. At that moment I realized that I wanted being a journalist,” Cerruti recalled.

“Currently I have to respond, but not anything because I am representing the President of the Nation,” Cerruti said before Sofia’s query.

Other axes that he addressed in the interview were the changes caused by the coronavirus pandemic in his work and daily life.

“When the pandemic appeared, I was a deputy and the complication arose from how we met in Congress, on care and protocols,” he remarked, stressing that these measures still persist.

“The other day a colleague wanted to give me a mate and I told him, they’ll bring mine right away. That’s one of the changes brought about by the pandemic,” he said.

Cerruti recalled his beginnings as a journalist and, especially, when at the age of 19 he participated in the program “Tiempo Nuevo” hosted by Bernardo Neustadt. “At that moment I felt a terrible fear because I was in a very important program”, he remarked.

At the end of the talk, Cerruti said that she “loved being able to participate in this and be interviewed by the journalists of the future” and stressed that “it is an honor to be questioned by the boys.”

After taking a picture with the presidential spokeswoman, the boys and girls were invited to visit the Casa Rosada and be received by the president, Alberto Fernández.

In a dialogue with Télam, Sofía stated that “she is very happy to be part of the Council. I never imagined being part of this, because until they told me, I did not know it existed.”

The Council of Boys and Girls is a participation space for boys and girls from 7 to 11 years old who meet with the purpose of analyzing and creating cultural proposals within the framework of Pakapaka.
