Promoting Safe and Responsible ICT Use by Children and Young People

On Safer Internet Day 2007, the Cyberspace Research Unit, in partnership with CEOP, hosted a conference to promote safe and responsible ICT use by children and young people.

The conference had three aims. Firstly, it aimed to address the ways in which children and young people’s use of ICTs and social networking services crosses borders and dissolves boundaries. Secondly, the conference aimed to examine the roles and responsibilities of key stakeholders in promoting safe and responsible use of ICTs and social networking services by children and young people. Thirdly, the conference aimed to identify the challenges associated with crossing borders and dissolving boundaries in educating children and young people, parents, teachers and others involved in education and child services, about the risks and opportunities associated with ICT use and social networking.

The event was at CCT Venues, Barbican, Aldersgate House, London, on Tuesday February 6th 2007, from 09:30. The conference was suitable for representatives and professionals from areas such as: policy making, government agencies, teachers, head teachers, governors, education and child welfare services, health services, police and enforcement agencies, general and specialised media, children’s charities, human rights and other NGOs.
