Design for Young People

For today's young people under age 18, technology and digital services have always been a part of daily life. But just because this generation “grew up on the internet,” doesn't mean they are experts in protecting their own privacy and safety online.

TTC Labs set out to explore the question: How might we design digital services with trust, transparency and control for young people?

We brought together policymakers, product creators, safety experts, and young people across the globe to help address this challenge.

Together, we explored ideas. We created digital prototypes, and a set of working principles. A toolkit for the future. Find our work in this report.

Designing for young people is the same as designing for any group. The first thing we must ask is: who are we designing for? What are their needs, their attitudes? How do they behave, and what are their goals?
