The pros and cons of technology and gaming in childhood

The 10th London Forum meeting will take place from 9 to 11 am on Friday 14th February 2020 in City Hall. Our aim in this meeting is to shine light on the rising occurrence of internet and gaming use with its beneficial as well as potentially damaging and addictive consequences. What do the children and young people say about why they spend time on their screens? Is this preventing them from going out to play? What is being done to prevent addiction and how are children and young people being helped to overcome addiction? What is the gaming industry doing to help? With Professor Henrietta Bowden-Jones OBE, Director of the newly set up, first NHS National Centre for Gaming Disorder, Olivia Nettleton, from Revealing Reality, and George Osborn, from UK Interactive Entertainment – UKIE, the only trade body for the UK’s games and interactive entertainment industry.  Agenda.
