Today’s children are growing up in an increasingly digital world. This presents opportunities, but also risks. On the one hand, UPC wants to make people aware of the dangers of material which is illegal or harmful to children and young people. On the other hand, parents and teachers need to be supported in protecting children and young people from age-inappropriate content.
UPC supports the new industry initiative for the protection of young people in the media published by asut. Together with our competitors we support measures to protect young people when using digital media.
