GDPR from a youth perspective
- Danish Youth Panel
At the end of March 2016 we published the latest edition of the BIK bulletin with a special focus on the topic of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Yesterday, the new legislation was adopted. In this article, three members of the Danish youth panel express their views on what the changes might mean for them, with particular reference to Article 8 which could have repercussions on the use of social media for young people under 16 as parental consent is now needed.

From May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will take effect in EU Member States. The GDPR aims to strengthen, simplify and harmonise data protection regimes across Europe, giving individuals control over how their data are processed. It explicitly acknowledges that children merit specific protection.

Child Focus is taking youth participation to the next level! In order to find motivated and enthusiastic youngsters for our Youth Platform, we want to implement a structured approach towards Belgian secondary schools. Interested schools who want to work on initiatives for better online experiences and related topics can apply to participate in the initiative for ‘Youth Ambassadors for Better Internet'. A minimum of 20 schools will be chosen on a yearly basis.
