How can we best advance children’s rights in the digital age?
As Malaysia journeys deeper into the digital age, it is clear that the children and youth will lead the way. The internet has become the meeting ground of choice for children today. While increased online activity supports children’s learning, socialization and play, it also puts them at heightened risk that could lead to harm. Children may come across information on how to self-harm or commit suicide. They may meet strangers online who seek to sexually abuse and exploit them. They can also be confronted with misinformation, hate speech or material of a violent or sexual nature.
We’re calling on parents, teachers, children and young people to join UNICEF Malaysia and Childline Foundation for a special “Our Lives Online” intergenerational dialogue to explore how we can collectively make the internet safer for children.
Date: Saturday, 19 September 2020
Time: 10:30 am - 12:00 noon
Press Conf.: 12:00 noon - 12:30 pm
