Childnet turns 20!
This month, partners in the UK Safer Internet Centre, Childnet turn 20! To mark two decades working in partnership with others around the world to help make the internet a great and safe place for children, they have produced a special 20th anniversary report.
The report brings together Childnet’s history under four key values that have remained at the heart of what they do from the very beginning. It shows how their empowering, youth-led, evidenced-based and collaborative approach has helped continue to promote the positive power of the internet whilst responding to the risks and promoting children’s resilience and wellbeing, both in the UK and globally.
It highlights Childnet’s role as one third of the UK Safer Internet Centre alongside the South West Grid for Learning and the Internet Watch Foundation.
The report was launched at Childnet’s 20th anniversary event on 22nd October. Attended by representative from across industry, charity, education, government, academia and police, as well as young people who have been involved in Childnet’s work, the event was a chance to look back over Childnet’s history whilst also looking to the future.
