"Young people are among the most prolific and knowledgeable users of information and communication technology.  But the digital revolution is out of the reach for many of them, especially young girls and women and people living in remote and underserved regions. I therefore urge policymakers and industry leaders to put their minds together, and to work cooperatively with children and youth to produce suitable technologies, applications and services to facilitate access to information and communications technology."
