The series focuses on topics that matter to teenagers, what they want to know, and how they can make the most of their time online. 

The first two episodes talk about news, information and the problems of false information, and children and young people’s rights online. Other topics that will be explored in the coming weeks are misinformation and disinformation, rights online, and well-being online. 

The Webwise Youth Panellists will speak experts including Susan Daly, Managing Editor with Journal Media; Julie Ahern, Legal, Policy and Services Director, Children’s Rights Alliance; and Professor Richard Layte, Trinity College Dublin.
