A Global Coalition for Digital Safety
With the growing challenge to counter health misinformation, violent extremist and terrorist content, and the exploitation of children online, there is an urgent need for more deliberate global coordination to improve digital safety.
The Global Coalition for Digital Safety aims to accelerate public-private cooperation to tackle harmful content online and will serve to exchange best practices for new online safety regulation, take coordinated action to reduce the risk of online harms, and drive forward collaboration on programs to enhance digital media literacy.
“All the processes of the modern world are connected to the Internet and information technologies. But at the same time, when we speak about high-tech processes, "digitalization" - we always know about the main goal: to create safe online environment for our citizens. Therefore, the global initiative to create purposeful cooperation between states, organizations and businesses is extremely relevant”.—– H.E. Mykhailo Fedorov, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Digital Transformation of Ukraine
As our lives in the digital and physical world continue to intersect, harms experienced online need to be better addressed. A framework to understand the risks and set safety standards can move us forward.
To change the face of online safety we’re cultivating a network of leaders committed to collaborating to tackle harmful content and conduct online.
We are driving public-private cooperation to advance more deliberate action in areas of child exploitation and abuse, terrorist activity, and health misinformation.
The insights from experts across business, government, civil society, and academia have helped shape a new path forward for assessing and improving digital safety globally.
