The rights of children

Promoting the rights of children, to be judged fairly recognizing their rights to use communication technology safely and with respect for themselves and others is the foundation upon which I deliver my classroom workshops.


Information Technology and the importance of empathy

John regularly delivers workshops to young people identifying the benefits of using information technology ethically to support the individual rights of youth and the collective rights of the family.


“Safeguarding Children Initiative has given me the opportunity to present to hundreds of people and provide them with my front line experiences when working with children, families and adults who often require support, guidance and road maps out of potentially dangerous situations or emerging conflict. I feel very privileged to work alongside my fellow presenters. They are all front line workers and this is the key to the success that has been achieved so far”
