Touré - Secretary-General of the UN International Telecommunication Union (ITU) - on the one hand online communication have revolutionized the world offering terrific opportunities, while on the other hand they made room for risks once unknown.                                                                        

The document published, entitled “Guidelines for Industry on Child Online Protection”, illustrates how information and communication technologies (ICT) can play a fundamental role in children online protection and how to empower responsible digital rights. Furthermore, it specifically targets internet tech companies - some of which, like Facebook, have also contributed to draft this common framework - to play their part.

These Guidelines aim to stimulate an widespread response to these new forms of children threat - engaging stakeholders, public and private sector, civil society up to parents and educators - and it intends to expand the reach of the digital revolution to children that couldn’t join it.
