Partnerships

We cooperate with a number of actors to offer an even greater and safer online life to children.

Telia is a co-founder of World Childhood Foundation. The partnership has been developed to focus on keeping children safe and in control online. Funding has been put into projects linked to ICT and Children’s rights. Childhood is an active contributor and a lead-NGO in the initiative Children’s Advisory Panel.

Save the Children Finland was an important partner when creating the initiative Children’s Advisory Panel in 2016, and has continued to support us actively in our development to better support children's rights in the digital world.

Save the Children Sweden has supported us to assess our operation’s impact on children’s rights with the aim to support and respect children’s rights in our daily operation, using the Children's Rights and Business Principles as a framework.

Telia Company has also formed partnerships on local country level on child safety issues.

Telia is a signatory to a number of self-regulatory initiatives in the area of Protection of Children online, and we drive our work to at least comply with the principles set by these initiatives. The signed initiatives are GSMA Mobile Alliance Against Child Sexual Abuse Content (2008), ICT Coalition for Children Online (2012), GSMA MoU with Child Helplines International (2014) and the Alliance to better protect minors online (2017).
