Technology is surrounding us. Everywhere, all the time. It’s in the hands of our children and shaping the worlds of their parents. We understand that being a parent with and in tech is not easy, but we want to make this statement not relevant, showing that it is doable and rewarding!
In the end, almost every parent is one in tech these days and children are the future savers of the Internet. Mozilla and Women Techmakers Berlin want to help parents and children navigate through this diverse, colorful, wonderful and sometimes opaque or even dangerous technical world: How can children be protected online? What possibilities and dangers are there? It will be topics like these that occupy us here.
We will come together with parents and supportive organizations to discuss the subject of keeping children safe online. Children (age 13 and under) will have the opportunity to take part in digital workshops and childcare will also be provided.
