Young and Online: Children’s perspectives on life in the digital age
The State of the World’s Children 2017 Companion Report

“Life is a blind lottery.
You cannot choose the
circumstances of your birth:
your gender, your ethnicity,
your parents’ wealth, or your
disability. Yet technology
has the immense potential
to even the playing field.
Technology can transform the
way children learn, connect
and discover opportunities
for their wellbeing and
development. In a world of
growing inequalities and
uncertainties, technology can
be a source of empowerment,
enabling children to become
the authors of their futures
and to rise above the cycle of
disadvantage.”
Philip Chan, Youth Advisor, RErights.org, 2017
