While we also presented our work on Child Rights by Design, we have selected this as the focus for our international webinar.
We are delighted that Mikiko Otani, Chair of the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child, will speak at the webinar, chaired by Baroness Beeban Kidron. This is not least because, in developing Child Rights by Design, building on current ideas of Privacy by Design, Safety by Design, and our own Playful by Design, we took our lead from the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child’s authoritative statement, General Comment No. 25, on how to implement the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child in relation to the digital environment.
To explore how innovators, policymakers and NGOs can advance children’s best interests in a digital world, recognising international developments and challenges, the webinar will include a panel chaired by Professor Sonia Livingstone alongside panellists Dorothy Gordon, Michael Preston, one of the DFC commissioners, and Pedro Hartung.
The webinar will also include a snapshot of our in-person conference in the form of a video created by the Gifted Young Generation, who hosted the event on the day.
The webinar will take place on 15th May 2023 at 5-6.30 pm (BST). Find out more about our speakers and register for your place below. Please join us!
