Agenda

IGF 2014 sub theme that this workshop fall under

Internet and Human Rights

Description

How can adults in charge of minors fulfil their duty of parenting while at the same time respecting the rights of the child?

Joint proposal by Zentrum für Kinderschutz im Internet - I-KiZ and klicksafe - EU-Initiative in the Safer Internet Programme together with Google Deutschland

Children and youths are accessing the Internet increasingly via mobile devices. A reliably available broadband infrastructure anywhere and high usability of devices like Tablet PCs and Smart Phones are the enablers of the fast growing mobile Internet usage among children and youths. This development raises new questions and challenges for parenting. Parents and other adults in charge of minors are asking for technical support to protect their children form unwanted encounters with harmful content and potentially risky contact with strangers. But at the same time children and youths themselves are holding fundamental human rights like privacy and freedom of speech that must be respected. With parental control as it is provided by technical tools often a high degree of monitoring of children's usage habits comes along that should be seen as intrusion into privacy and is therefore intolerable. Intelligent risk management in a mobile online environment should comprise both: protection of children and empowerment of youths by appropriate educational approaches and adequate technical means.
In this session light shall be cast on the current educational situation in families, media literacy of the parents and available technical tools for parental control but also new strategies like Safety by Design and the legal framework of children’s rights and parents duties shall be discussed.

Description of how the proposer plan to facilitate discussion amongst speakers, audience members and remote participants

In this working session we will take a look into the future and try to find out the existing strengths, potential and the positive aspects of mobile internet access and usage for children and youths.
The Appreciative Inquiry Session will involve all participants. It will follow a multi-perspective approach to identify the potential of intelligent risk management in a mobile environment, envisioning how parents can fulfill their duty of parenting while at the same time respecting the rights of the child
The session will support us developing a vision for the future with the help of these four steps:

1. Appreciating, valuing the best of what is – In the first step we will deal with the following questions and draw a positive picture: What is best of the current situation, what benefit does mobile internet usage provide

2. Envisioning, what might be – In the second step we have a close look into the future discovering the challenges and positive impact of the developments regards future mobile technology and Internet services in view of parents duties and children's rights

3. Engaging in dialogue about what should be – In the third step we will engage the participants in a dialogue about the potential intelligent risk management for children and youth in a mobile environment.
