|“Children and Youth on the Net” - European Expert Conference on Youth and Digital Media|
Seminar / Conference
26-28 April 2017 | Luxembourg, Luxembourg
Children and adolescents are surrounded by digital media, which have become highly interconnected. However, being immersed in the media like “fish in water” with access to online content almost anytime and anywhere poses challenges not only for kids.
Rather, maximizing the positive experiences of digital media use while limiting its risks and potential harm is a challenge that caregivers, stakeholders, service providers, media companies as well as policy makers have to face together. This conference brings together international experts who share the same goal—to monitor and understand the use of online media of the younger generations, to foster digital media education and to protect children and youths at cross-country levels.
