The reform of the Youth Protection Act on 1 May 2021 will bring minor and major changes:
In the future, the age rating of games and films will also take into account so-called interaction risks, e.g. cost traps or excessive use. Providers will also be required to set up a complaints management system that is comprehensible and easy to find for children and young people. In addition, all regulations will also be enforced against foreign providers such as TikTok, YouTube, Instagram, Discord and the like. Finally, the so-called "PG regulation", which allows parents of children between the ages of 6 and 12 to watch films from the age of 12 together, will be extended to persons with parental authority.
What do the changes mean for work with children and young people? What does this mean for the protection of minors "on site" or in institutions?
This event is aimed at youth protection professionals and managers or staff of youth welfare institutions. Other interested parties are welcome to attend.
The speaker at this event is Dr. Stephan Dreyer
, Senior Researcher Media Law & Media Governance at the Leibniz Institute for Media Research │Hans-Bredow-Institut (HBI)
The event will provide an overview of the topic and allow questions from the audience.
