Receiving participants at the event in the Vatican, Pope Francis was handed ‘The Declaration of Rome’ by a young girl (in photo) “on behalf of millions of young people around the world who need information and far more protection from the risks of sexual and other forms of abuse on the internet.”
One of the main points of the document is the need for technology companies and governments to innovate to better protect children.
One of the participants at the Congress was Antoine Normand from Canada. Normand is the founder of Blue Bear, a company that combats child pornography on the Internet thanks to the development of a software which analyzes and categorizes image and video evidence files seized during child pornography investigations and used in collaboration with the Police.
