Youth Activist Checklist: Guidance on Digital Safety and Online Protection of Young People
13 August 2021
The Internet and digital platforms are essential elements of many young people’s everyday lives; it is imperative that young people are informed and educated about the risks of their online engagement and the long-term implications of digital footprints as well as how to safeguard them.
The United Nations Office of the Secretary-General’s Envoy on Youth has collaborated with Twitter for Good to implement a youth-friendly guide for young people to navigate the safety features of the Twitter platform as well as to share young people's thoughts, experience, and feedback to the company's policy team to improve the way forward. Through this collaboration, the UN is calling for young people to express their interest to engage in this collaboration by being the Stay Safe Champions who can share their feedback and be community leaders in raising awareness of the importance of online safety.
