Digital technologies are dramatically impacting the way that children all over the world play, learn, work, interact, communicate, and access information and services. While these technologies offer many opportunities for education, professional development, and access to services and information, greater access to digital spaces also increases the risk of exposing children and youth to harm, online and offline.
The 2024 Protecting Children and Youth from Digital Harm Symposium offers an opportunity to identify as well as tackle digital harm issues and advance the goals of the Protecting Children and Youth from Digital Harm initiative within USAID’s APCAA and Digital Strategies. The Symposium will provide a forum to learn, share, and engage with youth leaders, government, civil society, donors, and the private sector. It will focus on global voices and intentionally designing interventions to protect children and youth with children and youth.
