We have offered our Youth Media Protection Expert Lunch since 2016 exclusively for association members active in the area of youth protection, with the aims of enhancing the exchange of ideas and experiences, gathering information, and allowing dialogue to be initiated with us and amongst members. The meetings take place two to three times a year, with additional relevant parties and external experts sometimes also invited to contribute. The focus is on the following topics:FĂŒr Unternehmen

  • Legal developments for youth media protection in its broadest sense
  • “Digital trends”
