Right to Assembly and Association, Participation and Play

Children have the right to freedom of association and the freedom of peaceful assembly. (UN-CRC Art. 15) This right also has to be ensured/ guaranteed, where the public sphere has expanded into the digital world, i.e. through social networking services and other forms of assembly in the digital world.

For developing social skills and growing up healthy also the right to play is important. The digital world must be designed as a safe and appropriate place for exercising this right. (UN-CRC Art. 31)

Digitisation has broadened the possibilities for children to take part actively in dissemination of information, opinions and ideas and provides huge potential, especially with regard to democratic co-determination. Information can be provided, spread, publicly discussed and commented on very quickly anywhere.
