Child Online Protection Initiative (COP) is part of International Telecommunication Union (ITU)'s initiative. COP is one of the GKPF action lines as protecting our children from and educating them about the dangers and pitfalls that the use of ICT’s bring with them is the sacred duty of all. This should not be exercised just through the creation and implementation of rules and regulation, but also seen as a social and economical opportunity for all stakeholders involved.
The vision is to bring about young people that make informed decisions and who use digital technologies in a way that supports their personal development and the socio-economical development of the societies in which they live. The concrete aim is to create generation after generation of ICT capable young people that are ready and able to contribute. This open, positive and proactive approach to COP offers many opportunities to all stakeholders:The social sector, by getting engaged with COP, will be able to further human rights in general and the rights of children in particular.
The private sector, by getting involved with COP, can create clear business opportunities for itself whilst at the same time exercising is corporate social responsibilities. The governmental sector, by getting involved with COP, lays the social and economical foundations for their countries to become players in a digital world. Besides looking at prevention, education and the opportunities COP brings with it, we will also ask which instruments and tools we need to bring into place to help those who have become victims in cyberspace.
