Plan International Phl,  Twitter launch #NotForSale: A Safer Twitter campaign, resource hub

Plan International and Twitter believe that being online can help children and young people not only to cultivate meaningful relationships with their peers and loved ones, but also to learn about and engage on the important issues of their time.

Plan International Philippines has teamed up with Twitter to develop #NotForSale: A Safer Twitter – a digital campaign that tackles the issue of Online Sexual Abuse and Exploitation of Children (OSAEC) and seeks to empower parents, guardians, and all digital users hold in making the Twitter platform and other online spaces safe for children and young people.

The launching event, “#SaferInternetDay Talks: How we can keep Filipino children safe online” will happen on 8 February, 5:30 PM via Twitter Spaces (twitter.com/planphilippines), in cooperation with partners from the Down to Zero programme, a global alliance that seeks to combat Sexual Exploitation of Children (SEC) in 12 countries across Asia and Latin America. 

Following the launch, digital users can visit the #NotForSale: A Safer Twitter Resource Hub at bit.ly/TwitterNotForSalePH to:

  • Get to know the basics of Digital Parenting or Digital Citizenship;
  • Learn to recognize the different forms of OSAEC, and;
  • Understand and maximize the Twitter Safety Features

The Resource Hub will include short videos about these topics, as well as a guide on how parents and guardians can begin the conversation with their child to talk about online safety.

“Being online is an important part of enriching children and young people’s education, building their leadership and character, and bringing them closer to their interests. But entering the online world should not cost them their safety and well-being,” said Plan International Philippines Country Director Ana Maria Locsin. “We have to work together—as parents, educators, tech companies, and government—to create a safer internet for all and be firm in showing that our children and young people are #NotForSale.”
