The Digital Futures Commission team

The Digital Futures Commission – hosted by 5Rights Foundation – is a flagship project driven by a board of Commissioners. It consists of three work streams – Play in the Digital World, Beneficial Uses of Education Data, and Guidance for Innovators. In each strand we are trying to shift the dial – our outputs will be focused on reimagining the digital world as if it were built for children, by design.

Our Commissioners represent the following organisations: 5Rights Foundation; BBC Research & Development North Lab; Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation; Erase All Kittens; EY; Joan Ganz Cooney Center at Sesame Workshop; LEGO; London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE); Technological University Dublin; The Alan Turing Institute; The Behavioural Insights Team; University of Leeds.

You can learn more about the Digital Futures Commission here. You can also check out our blog, where we regularly profile the DFC's work.
