Conference on the International Condemnation and Combat of the Grey Areas of Child Sexual Exploitation on the Internet -
The condemnation and combat of depictions of child sexual exploitation on the Internet is the objective of the Network against the Abuse and Sexual Exploitation of Children – No Grey Areas on the Internet.
At an international roundtable in October 2015 more than 30 organizations have already signed the "Communiqué - Condemnation of all forms of child sexual exploitation and abuse – No Grey Areas on the Internet", see here. The conference on 14 November 2016 will also address this topic and specifically increase the knowledge gained so far, expand the network, and further contribute to making combatting images in the Grey Area more concrete.

UKCCIS programme is to reach out to developers with free workshops by the Trust and Safety Group founders - Annie Mullins and Rebecca Newton. They will be hosted at SuperAwesome, and the first is on the 21st July. I’d be really grateful if you could support the event by tweeting out and passing the attached information to your developer networks.
UK Council for Child Internet Safety (UKCCIS) is a group of more than 200 organisations drawn from across government, industry, law, academia and charity sectors that work in partnership to help keep children safe online. The social media working group within UKCCIS created a attached guide for providers of social media and interactive services which gives examples of good practice from leading technology companies, and advice from NGOs and other online child safety experts. Its purpose is to encourage businesses to think about “safety by design” to help make their platforms safer for children and young people under 18.
The guide uses the safety framework of the ICT Coalition for Children Online, a European industry initiative to make its platforms safer for users, this framework includes six principles: Content, Parental Controls, Dealing with Abuse/Misuse, Child Abuse or Illegal Contact, Privacy and Control, and Education and Awareness. This guide builds on these principles, illustrating them with advice and industry examples.
The Trust & Safety Group will host a free workshop on 21 July based around the key aspects of the UKCCIS guide for providers of social media and interactive services, providing an overview of child protection online and other specialist advice for web and mobile businesses
