Young Scots reveal challenges to their rights online

A new report presented to the Scottish Government finds that more than half (59%) of young people have experienced or know someone who has been effected by bullying online. Two in five (41%) young people have admitted they don’t know if their rights are being observed in the digital world.

The report was developed and delivered by a group of young people called the Young Scot 5Rights Youth Commission.

The report asks the Scottish Government to engage with young people in all decision-making processes about the digital world. It emphasises the need for the rights of young people to be promoted across the tech world and to be made a top priority in the design, provision and consumption of digital technology.
