About this Event

With cable internet systems rolling out across the Pacific, access to affordable and fast digital connectivity in the region is set to rapidly expand, opening up unprecedented opportunities for children but also potentially exposing them to new risks and potential harm. Child online safety in the Pacific region stands at a critical juncture.

Join Chief Executives from Plan International Australia and ChildFund Australia in discussion with expert Professor Amanda Third, Western Sydney University to launch the Online Safety in the Pacific Report. Hear more about children and young people’s online experiences based on research conducted through Living Labs in Kiribati, Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands. Our panel will discuss emerging regional challenges, and the programmatic solutions we have developed to keep children and young people safe online.
