The Head of Safety at MovieStarPlanet, Vernon Jones, participated with over 240 other experts, researchers and stakeholders to a meeting in Berlin to develop a roadmap for children growing up with media.

“Net Children 2020 – Growing up with Media” European Expert conference, hosted by the German Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth (BMFSFJ), and the Hans Bredow Institute, brought together experts to plan a roadmap for media education and the protection of children and youths, and current needs for action and potential solutions. Jones was asked to facilitate the input from industry delegates on the topic “How can Social, Political and Regulatory Frameworks Contribute to Media Education and Youth Protection?”

“The conference gave experts a great opportunity to look forward to 2020 and give input on what can be achieved to further improving safeguarding issues and access to positive content for children”, Jones explained after returning from Germany.
