The session

The Future of Human Agency – Honoring Children’s Data to Save Ourselves by Irene Leino (UNICEF), John C. Havens (IEEE), Arash Sammander (Rockhubs) and Turkka Koivu, Elisa.

The relationship between data collection and usage, consent and privacy terms and conditions is complex enough for adults, let alone for children. Yet 1/3 of all internet users globally are minors under 18 years old. We are lacking a good understanding of the enormous accumulation of data being collected about these minors as well as ideas for practical solutions how to change currently existing practices.

This conversation will bring together a variety of organizations and perspectives to help us identify the current situation and children’s data privacy challenges, as well as seek practical solutions to solve those challenges.
