THE BROADBAND COMMISSION INVITES ALL PRIVATE AND PUBLIC SECTOR ENTITIES, AND NON-GOVERNMENTAL ORGANIZATIONS TO SIGN THIS DECLARATION AND DEMONSTRATE THEIR COMMITMENT TO COLLABORATE IN THEIR ACTIONS TO ENSURE THAT ALL CHILDREN CAN BE SAFER ONLINE.

 

DECLARATION

Each signatory, based on their respective role and mandate, commits to:

ENGAGE

Engage the private sector and public sector entities, academic institutions, civil society, subject matter experts as partners, in stimulating child online safety that is appropriate for the local context.

INVESTIGATE

Investigate and arrive at cooperative modes of engagement which are relevant to specific contextual factors affecting child rights. These include awareness campaigns against child labor or child trafficking or other known issues that catalyze exploitation of, or violence against, children.

PROACTIVELY UTILIZE

Utilize new innovative technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence, data analytics tools and data motifs to prevent networks and services, as well as the internal IT environment from being used by adults and children to collect and distribute child sexual abuse material or commit other violations against children.

PROMOTE

Ensure that we actively promote child online safety, in order to accelerate policy changes and prioritization across public and private sectors. This will demonstrate the priority that private sector is giving to protecting children and supporting their parents, family and caregivers through the duty they face in today’s digitally complex society.

TACKLE

Tackle child online safety with our ability and resourcefulness and exert ourselves to unify stances on the need to ensure a safe online environment for children and to block the proliferation of child abuse content over the Internet, as an integral part of the public good.

In addition to these five core commitments, each signatory will:

– Support child-friendly digital services, and cybersecurity measures to protect systems and platforms used by children.

– Utilize tools and platforms available to ensure that digital innovations support public good.

– Take leadership and proactively promote the cause of child online safety, through innovative approaches for a healthier digital future of society and sanctions to offenders.

– Collaborate with other stakeholders across sectors and industry segments and foster knowledge as well as expertise on addressing the child online safety.

– Support educational campaigns and school courses to train children for online safety.

– Make measurable progress toward the establishment and strengthening of hotlines and helplines to make sure that all children have access to help when they need it (as a victim or with a sexual problem behaviour).

In agreement with this Declaration, after having considered the scope of work, principles, and commitments, based on their organization’s role and mandate, the following representatives have affirmed their respective entity’s commitment to the cause of child online safety and joined the movement:
