Young people's digital rights in safe hands at industry event
A group of 50 young people attended a special event on digital rights in Dublin.
The consultation was jointly held by Unicef and Twitter as transition year students from across the country joined industry leaders at the #DigitalYouth17 gathering. The group was invited to Twitter EMEA Headquarters to come up with solutions to the challenges posed by the influence of technology in young people's lives.
Executive director of Unicef Ireland Peter Power said: "Unicef protects and promotes children's rights all over the world.
"In Ireland, we make policy recommendations to ensure Irish children get the best opportunities in life. Involving young people in that process is crucial."
