I have enjoyed chairing on 11.07.2012 a full day's discussion with a broad range of stakeholders. We have reviewed progress since Neelie launched with key CEOs a coalition to deliver urgent coordinated action on this point.
There were 5 key action points:
We have made pretty good progress in multi-stakeholder working groups in the last few months. Progress does not mean success, and in some areas (notably content classification and to my surprise the take-down of Child Abuse Material ) we need to work harder. But I am confident that CEOs will by year-end have some new "best practice" tools that can be used to improve the younger EU citizen's Internet experience, and build the trust of kids and grown-ups alike in the growing possibilities of our online world.
A report on progress towards delivering the 5 actions and a report of the meeting on 11.07.2012 will be available online on 19th July on the following site: http://ec.europa.eu/information_society/activities/sip/self_reg/index_en.htm
