YPRT: Youth Protection Roundtable

The goal of the Youth Protection Roundtable is to encourage a collaborative and cross-sector dialogue focusing
on the optimal mix of effective technology-enhanced strategies on the one hand and education-based strategies on
the other hand to enable youth – and responsible adults in the case of minors – for a safe and secure use of the
Internet.
Considering the various cultural backgrounds of European countries, the activities will emphasize the
following elements:
• Facilitate and coordinate the exchange of views between technical experts and children's welfare
specialists
• Find a common language
• Enable technicians to take account of the possible effect of newly developed technologies on their safe
use by children
• Improve the accessibility of filtering technologies
• Provide European parents and educators with the information necessary to decide on adequate content in
accordance with their cultural values
• Motivate children's welfare experts to include consultation on appropriate filtering into their portfolio
• Identify good practice approaches
• Include a strong evaluation and assessment component
• Build international bridges to the policy-making process within Europe
• Provide a robust outreach and communication strategy
