Providing new opportunities for leisure and creativity

Impact of mobile technology

Every child has the right to relax, play and take part in a wide range of cultural and artistic activities. Indeed, research shows that children are spending increasing amounts of time socialising, playing, interacting, creating and being entertained online, including through mobile devices.

Mobile operators can work with expert organisations to educate families and teachers about making informed digital choices as well as supporting educational programmes that encourage play and creativity, such as coding workshops.
