Kids and Media: This is us!
Our visionKids and Media is a non-profit, charitable organisation which gives information and advice about children’s use of digital media. Our vision is to see children and teenagers using media with safety and awareness.
Target groupOur main target group is parents. We wish to help parents to guide and guard their children in a digital world, different from the media world they themselves experienced as children. Kids and Media seek to support, equip and empower parents and professionals who work with children and teenagers.
Our foundationOur work is rooted in the UN´s Convention on the Rights of the Child, which underlines children’s rights to use media, at the same time as they have a right to protection from harmful content. The information and advice our organisation gives is politically and religiously neutral.
