Kids Online


The collection and dissemination of good, effective and shared practices that balance kids safety and support fun by supporting critical conversations among stake holders through face to face events and online.


Every working group 'inherits' the general principles of Identity Commons itself -- see Purpose And Principles.

  • Focused on not just "SAFETY" but also seeking kids as whole people that have other needs for fun and explorations.
  • When possible actually support the inclusion of kids in the discussions


  • When holding conferences participatory design methods will be used
  • We will be open to supporting ongoing conversations in other forums (an existing ning community)
  • Our events will contribute 15% of money earned to the general operating costs of Identity Commons.
