Conference to Address Youth Privacy

CHILDREN’S PRIVACY—AUSTRALIA

March 4, 2010

Privacy Victoria will host a conference in May geared toward the privacy and online safety of children and young people. Educators, policy makers, youth workers, parents and young people are encouraged to attend the "Watch this Space: Children, Young People and Privacy" event, which will address the privacy of youths in the online environment. "Privacy is not just for grown-ups," says Victorian Privacy Commissioner Helen Versey. It is important for young people to "understand privacy issues and empower youth to protect themselves in their rapidly changing world." The one-day conference, which will feature Children's Ambassador Noni Hazlehurst as emcee, will be held 21 May in Melbourne and will include the presentations of more than 25 leading experts in the areas of privacy, law, education and cybersafety. Commissioner Versey has created a Sponsored Delegate program for the event. (See related story below.)
