CMF Supports iRights

Baroness Beeban Kidron's iRights campaign aims to make the internet safer for kids while maintaining their "right to roam". CMF has signed up as a supporting organisation.

At a well-attended launch event in London on 28 July, Baroness Kidron and a range of supporting speakers, including Internet Safety Minister, Baroness Shields, introduced the work that iRights has been doing to develop a legal framework and build support for its online rights principles.

Designed to enable children and young people to access the digital world "creatively, knowledgeably and fearlessly" iRights are 5 core values which should inform the design and standards of any website that children might access.

More information on the iRights framework and the work that iRights is doing can be found on their website. Or check out the iRights video here.
