Exploring Creative Green Economy: A Path to Sustainable Development

The session aims to foster an engaging and interactive discussion on the innovative approaches and strategies within the Creative Green Economy framework. By bringing together experts, thought leaders, and practitioners dedicated to sustainability and creative economies, we seek to explore how these initiatives contribute to sustainable development, address environmental challenges, and foster inclusive and equitable growth.

Session Format: Unconference

In an "Unconference" format, the session is participant-driven rather than speaker-driven. Unlike traditional conferences where speakers deliver prepared presentations, an Unconference encourages active participation and collaboration among all attendees. The agenda is flexible and evolves based on the interests and contributions of the participants. Attendees have the freedom to propose discussion topics, form smaller discussion groups, and engage in spontaneous conversations. This format fosters a more organic and interactive exchange of ideas, allowing for diverse perspectives to emerge and for deeper exploration of key issues. Ultimately, the Unconference format empowers participants to shape the direction and outcomes of the session collaboratively.


Our collaborative efforts in promoting the "In Our Hands (IOH)" campaign, centered around the idea of Creative Green Economy. This initiative is a joint endeavor involving key partners such as the British Council, Nepal Kathmandu University, Edinburgh Napier University, Applied Arts Scotland, Nepal Art Village, and Story Cycle.

Safer Internet Day - Protection of Children in the Digital Age
In this digital age, the information and communication technology sector is advancing tremendously. Along with the fast progress, this revolution brings with it numerous adversities and dangers. Children and young people are heavy users of the technology.  Unsafe use of digital technology exposes them to serious harm, such as online sexual abuse & exploitation, cyberbullying, phishing and sextortion. Such harms affect children's mental and cognitive development, humiliate and lower their self-esteem. Children, young people, parents, teachers and governments need to take cyber safety seriously and fulfil their responsibilities in making the internet a safer place.
The session, "Protection of Children in the Digital Age", aims to generate support from the duty-bearers to make the internet safer for children and young people.
Since cyber safety is an issue relevant to all internet users, we all have responsibilities to make the internet safer for our children and young people.
Let us work Together for a Better Internet.
ChildSafeNet is a non-governmental organisation, established with a mission to make digital technologies safer for children and young people. ChildSafeNet works to raise awareness on safer use of the internet and digital technologies to protect children and young people from internet addiction, online sexual abuse and exploitation, cyber-bullying, phishing, gaming addiction, and to promote digital literacy.
