Minimum and Maximum Age Policy
Minimum – maximum age of attendees for the live Youth Track.
13 yrs – 25 yrs.
As this is a virtual conference in which young people are invited to live online workshops with young people from around the globe, we have decided to set our minimum age for attendees at 13yrs. This decision reflects general policy set by the majority of social media platforms which have set their age restrictions as 13+; This age limit has been dictated by US law through the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).
Although we will be using Zoom as our conference platform and not using social media to communicate directly with the young people in workshops, some of their ideas might be shared (anonymously and with permission) through social media platforms such as Instagram, Facebook and Twitter to promote INCCIP’s work in the field.
Furthermore, we will be asking the young people who attend to respect group confidentiality protocol and adhere to our youth group rules around inclusion and respect, as well engage as fully as possible in the discussions and activities. For all these reasons the minimum age of 13 has been set for this virtual conference.
