Thanks for your contribution,
5Rights Foundation is supporting the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child to develop a General Comment on Children’s Rights and the Digital Environment.
This is truly groundbreaking and will set a new international standard for children’s rights in a digital world. It is necessary and timely, as children grow up in an increasingly connected world where technology has critically significant impacts on their lives. Among other things, the new General Comment will explore key rights and clarify the roles and responsibilities of government, business, parents, educators and children themselves.
Your submission will strengthen the case for global action. Please do share this online consultation widely within your networks.
