There is no doubt that the internet has created a wide range of beneficial opportunities for children and young people in Europe. Increasingly, European children are starting to go online at younger ages, with a recent report suggesting that the average age to start is seven.

Given these trends, policymakers and industry have a responsibility to protect children from the threats and risks that the internet may pose. From child sexual abuse to digital reputation risks, and online bullying to the accessing of inappropriate content, numerous and complex risks exist, and a multi-layered approach involving cooperation betwen all stakeholders needs to be adopted in order to tackle these.

This conference will look at current strategies to address these risks in both Europe and beyond, and look to the future and at developing an ongoing strategy to help keep children and young adults safe when they are online.

Sessions at the event will include:

  • Moving Forward: Policy-¬making to ensure child safety
  • Equipping children and parents with the digital literacy skills to help keep them safe
  • A global strategy to combat child abuse material and inappropriate content
