Advisory Council launch

We’re delighted to welcome over twenty amazing individuals to our new voluntary Advisory Council. Each brings a variety of experience from campaigning and childrights, to data, technology and horizon scanning. They work in education, #humanrights, law, media, policy, regulation, research, social care, story telling, offer perspectives as students and young people or their advocates, and much more.

We want to drive a positive vision of what a better future looks like, and reimagine a world with safe, fair and just use of information, technology, and why it matters. We spend a lot of time as campaigners opposing things, but to build a grassroots need for change we need a positive future to replace those things we stop. Starting to build a better digital understanding of the big picture, and support for parents and children are part of that.

We’re excited and grateful that this group of individuals are willing to help us build that sustainable future, and will challenge us to deliver our own vision.

Members of the Advisory Council are volunteers and will give defenddigitalme independent advice on an unpaid basis, about a broad range of issues, and we may differ in views and values. The view of the member may not represent the position of defenddigitalme or vice versa.
