The panellists agreed that the Interfaith Alliance needed to help build a world where every child can grow up free from harm and violence (including online abuse and exploitation). The solution to remedy this would be for alliances to be built in small places such as homes, schools and communities. For example, parents should be encouraged to jointly surf the net with their children in their own homes, promoting joint safety. Schools need to empower teachers so they can raise awareness of the risks of the online world. Finally the private sector should look at developing digital tools, which ensure families and young children can surf the web without risk.
Faith based organisations can help make the best use of technology, by investing in children and promoting solutions, which informs children’s views and experiences on what risk means., ensuring children can be empowered, becoming informed digital citizens, and at the same time help them have solid values.
