The Commission for Media Youth Protection (Kommission für Jugendmedienschutz “KJM'') invited experts from politics, public institutions and media to debate on the subject “modern youth media protection: responsibility in the context of new realities'' at the kick-off event “KJM in dialogue'' in Berlin.

In two panel discussions experts debated on fundamental issues on the question about “contemporary technical media youth protection''. The participants agreed on the necessary support of all stakeholders in the youth media protection sector, given the fact of the proceeding media convergence and internationalisation. Investing in funds on the development of youth media protection systems belongs, next to an enhanced labelling of websites, to the promotion of youth media protection programs.
