Children growing up in a digital society.

In light of the concerns of potential risks that the digitalised world poses to children, the House of Lords Select Committee on Communications carried out an inquiry that aimed to understand what issues and opportunities children face in the digital society.

The inquiry highlighted a fragmented policy landscape and the limited effectiveness of self-regulation in protecting children, as well as opportunities for joined-up action on issues and opportunities facing children in the digital society.

The report's recommendations include a call for industry to adopt more child-friendly design and filters, for digital literacy to become a fourth pillar in children's education, and for improved efforts from various stakeholders to ensure that children's online opportunities are being optimised.
