Global Kids Online is a growing international research partnership with the long-term goal of providing robust evidence on how the world’s children use the internet and how it impacts on their well-being and rights.


How to join Global Kids Online

We encourage researchers to communicate to us their ideas of how they might use and adapt the existing toolkit and to share the lessons learned, thus contributing to the ongoing development and improvement of the Global Kids Online initiative.

In addition to using the research toolkit, we invite researchers to join the Global Kids Online project and contribute to our aim – to learn from children’s experiences and to help policy makers, educators, and governments make the internet better for children.
