On the occasion of Safer Internet Day 2017, the Council of Europe is organising the first meeting of a drafting group of experts tasked with the elaboration of guidelines for member States to empower, protect and support children's safe access to their rights on the internet. True to the Safer Internet Day's motto "Be the change: unite for a better internet", the kick-off meeting of the meeting brings together experts on children’s rights and the digital environment from government authorities,  data protection authorities , academia, intergovernmental and non-governmental organisations to kick-off the drafting process, which is also expected to involve consultations with other key stakeholders, including children and private sector representatives. These guidelines are being developed within the framework of the Council of Europe's Ad hoc Committee for the Rights of the Child (CAHENF) and  the Council of Europe's Strategy for the Rights of the Child (2016-2021).
