The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) in June launched the 2020
guidelines on Child Online Protection <www.itu-cop-guidelines.com/>
(COP) on how to contribute to the development of a safe and empowering
online environment for children. The guidelines provide a set of concrete
recommendations for children, parents and educators, industry, and
policy-makers serving as a blueprint that can be adapted to national or
local customs and laws.
Similarly, in March during #TakeOnTech, Grace Githaiga hosted Steven
Wanjuku, Tech Engineer Tunapanda Net, Wainana Mungai, President Internet
Society Kenya Chapter, and Nahashon Ndirangu, SafeHouse. They had an
interesting discussion about Child online safety.
Now, that we are home more than ever, I know most of us, perhaps being
fully engaged in online work or virtual meetings, we tend to forget what
our kids are doing on their gadgets. This is one conversation that needs to
be listened to and action is taken.
