What is positive online content?

We define it as "digital content aimed at children, which enables them to learn, have fun, create, enjoy, develop a positive view of themselves and respect for their identity, enhance their participation in society and produce and distribute their own positive content."

September 2019 was Positive Online Content Awareness Month, but positive content is important all year round.
