    • Changing existing legislation on children’s rights and child protection online in order to reinforce children’s rights online as well as child protection mechanisms online;
  • Technology:
    • Developing an authentication and validation tech infrastructure to enable practical implementation of existing legislation on children’s rights and child protection online;
    • Developing additional tech infrastructure in order to reinforce children’s rights online as well as child protection mechanisms online;
  • Cooperation:
    • Aligning cooperation mechanisms for institutions and organisations responsible for European and national policy-making and policy implementation on children’s rights and child protection online with requirements derived from the practical implementation of existing legislation on children’s rights and child protection online;
