Young people are growing up in a world where computers, tablets and smartphones are part of their daily lives. This technology offers important opportunities for entertainment, education, communication and cultural development, but also brings along well-being and safety risks. Within MediaMovez, we study - together with youth - how we can empower them to use media in a safe, responsible and healthy manner.
