Growing up in a digital world

Learn how the Commission is recommending a healthier digital environment for children, and the roles that policymakers, academics, and governments play today.


How can digital first health systems deliver better health futures for young people ?

Launched on 12 August 2022, #MyHealthFutures calls on all stakeholders in the digital health ecosystem to support a global movement to build better health futures through implementing the Commission’s recommendations. The campaign has been designed by young people and aimed at creating space to hear from young people in shaping health futures.​

Representatives from twenty-three global youth networks convened at a two-part GHFutures2030 Youth Consultation hosted by Wilton Park and co-authored a statement on the health futures youth want. They also adopted a strong Call For Action which urges stakeholders to take action towards strong governance of the digital transformations in health with youth meaningfully and intentionally involved at every level.

GHFutures2030 Youth Network

The network will bring together young people under the age of thirty to build a movement dedicated to digital health governance inspired by the needs of children and young people.
