Trend

The boundary between our real and digital worlds is constantly shifting. This year’s applications introduced new ideas and solutions to help us cope with digital anxiety, give new tools to parents and carers to support their loved ones and find ingenious and playful ways to break down complex emotional experiences for children. Whilst we prepare the next generation to continue in the pursuit of a peaceful and diverse society, they showed us how we must also afford everyone, especially the most vulnerable amongst us, the right to live with dignity and enjoy a rewarding life.
