Rapporteur: Boris Ohanyan, Geneva Internet Platform

  • A holistic approach, involving business, governments, civil society, and the education system, is needed to ensure that online products and platforms are designed and used in a way that promotes mental well-being.
  • Media literacy and education should be integrated in the school system.
  • More research on digital addiction is needed. Further, research skills of teachers and educators can be enhanced to ensure that they can contribute to the observation of behavior in the digital environment.
