Young and Online: International Children's Consultation for UNICEF'S 2017 State of the World's Children Report
Western Sydney University’s RErights.org team, in partnership with UNICEF’s State of the World’s Children team and UNICEF Country Offices and National Committees internationally, designed and delivered participatory research workshops with 500 children in 26 countries to gather children’s insights about their access and use of digital media. The results were included in UNICEF’s annual flagship report, the State of the World’s Children 2017: Children in a Digital World. The team also authored a companion report – Young and Online: Children’s perspectives on life in the digital age - and a data snapshot for each of the 26 countries.
RErights is an online platform developed by Western Sydney University, in partnership with the Young and Well Cooperative Research Centre, Digitally Connected, and UNICEF’s Voices of Youth, where young people can share their insights and experiences about their rights in the digital age.
