The Digital Agenda for Europe aims to have every European digital. Children have particular needs and vulnerabilities on the internet; however, the internet also provides a place of opportunities for children to access knowledge, to communicate, to develop their skills and to improve their job perspectives and employability.
The 'Strategy for a Better Internet for Children' proposes a series of actions to be undertaken by the Commission, Member States and by the whole industry value chain. Find out more on the European Commisssion's website.
In reaching this point however, European Commission policy has evolved over the course of a number of years and via various programmes. To help track this process, we have developed a policy roadmap aiming to provide a chronological overview of the various relevant activity lines and stakeholders involved, including programme timelines, key outreach events and campaigns, the role of industry, as well as the ongoing evaluation processes.
