The impact of technological transformation on the digital generation- policy recommendations

civic participation | education | family | leisure time | policy briefs

In this policy brief, we present research-based policy
recommendations, designed to combat systematic
inequalities in the opportunities, capacities, and desires of
young people to reap the benefits of digitalisation.

The policy recommendations will assist national authorities
to design policies that may support their work towards
many of the child-focused Sustainable Development Goals
(SDGs) developed by the United Nations. We show how the
technological transformations affecting the lives of young
people should be taken into account when reporting on
progress towards these goals. Finally, we provide some tools
to identify indicators and data on a European and national
level to help identifying relevant focus areas.
