An introduction to digital literacy and skills
Another page online survey.We post links to different online surveys on children here.
Global index insights show that generations, with more media than older generations with some notable differences by age,mostly online videos like youtube and tik tok,making it their top media to consume right now.Which according to JP Morgan is a permanent shift that has taken place across the industry from a linear platform to a digital platform. This can be seen in the increase in subscription and consumption of social media platforms for instance Facebook’s total use across its messaging services has increased by more than 50% in areas most affected by the virus. On Messenger and WhatsApp channels, voice and video calling more than doubled in the same timeframe. In Italy, for example, time spent across its app suite was up 70% since the outbreak, and group calling increased by 1,000% during the last month.
The increase in media consumption means that more children are being exposed to fake news, misinformation and disinformation through digital media platforms or through parents who consume it on their behalf, which has increased, for instance in April, 2020 Facebook flagged over 50 Million Fake COVID19 posts. Misinformation, disinformation and no information have an impact on not only mental health of children, but also long term view of the world around them.

Keeping Children Safe 2020 Summit
Every five minutes, a child dies from violence. Every day, in every country, children are abused, beaten, raped and more. Too often, the abuser is someone the child knows and trusts. They may even work for an organisation that’s meant to help children. A sports club, school, aid organisation or peacekeeping force. But they abuse their power and the child’s trust.
Tragically, it is children in already desperate situations who are most at risk. It could be a refugee child fleeing conflict. A boy or girl living in poverty. A teenager living with a disability. Or a child from an ethnic minority facing stigma and discrimination.
Yes, it would be great to all meet up, but child safeguarding is too important to wait for the COVID-19 pandemic to go away.
So, whether you work for a not-for-profit, government department, a privately run company, or you are a donor, if you in any way work for or with children, then it is high time to start implementing globally recognised safeguarding standards that keep children safe from abuse.

GPC GLOBAL PROTECTION FORUM 2020
The Global Protection Cluster (GPC), its Strategic Advisory Group (SAG) Members including the Areas of Responsibility (AoRs) are organising with partners and field coordinators the GPC 2020 Global Protection Forum to discuss contemporary and emerging protection challenges, review the strategic direction of the cluster, and plan activities to be undertaken at field and global level for the year to come.
This annual meeting is also a forum where field cluster coordinators discuss the evolution of operational realities, facilitate knowledge and peer to peer exchange between cluster operations, and discuss cluster operational capacities required to respond to emerging needs and field demands.
The forum will provide opportunities for field coordinators, global and field operational partners, and key stakeholders to engage and exchange on a range of current thematic and technical protection related issues. Finally, the meeting is also an opportunity to showcase the work of the cluster to a wide range of partners and mobilize partnerships and resources.
The debates and exchanges of the Protection Forum will contribute to collective efforts under the GPC 2020-2024 Strategic Framework to support effective and predictable field coordination and delivery of life-saving protection services and outcomes.
