‘The human shift’ is happening now, caused by the over-digitalization of children’s lives: the world must prioritize aligning technological progress with the healthy development of children.

DAVOS, Switzerland, Jan. 15, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — The global advocacy campaign, Human Change, launched today in Davos during the World Economic Forum to raise awareness and instigate a transformation in the way children approach networking social networks and the digitalization of their lives.

The campaign, founded by Margarita Louis-Dreyfus, unites people from all walks of life (academics, pediatricians, advocates, professionals, teachers and, most importantly, parents and young people) in a shared commitment to protecting children from the detrimental effects of digitalization.

The Human Change campaign is committed to reshaping the global health narrative and bringing the impact of social media and digital devices on children’s well-being to the forefront of the global health conversation.

In a series of cutting-edge panel discussions, international experts in psychology, medicine, business, government and more will gather at Human Change House to discuss how digitalization and social media are changing our children, and how these children as adults will shape the society of the future. Other discussions will focus on how much educational technology is too much? Do governments have a responsibility to better regulate technology to protect future generations? And what is the impact of digital addiction on the workforce of the future?

Leading physicians, leaders in their field, will seek answers to these pressing questions and more.

Davos audiences will hear science-backed arguments from Dr. Mitch Prinstein, chief scientific officer of the American Psychological Association; Dr. Michael Rich, founder of the Digital Wellness Lab, Boston Children’s Hospital, and Dr. Stacy Drury, psychiatrist, as well as Dr. Jim Winston, Psychologist and Trustee of the Winston Family Foundation.

Additionally, panels will feature Human Change’s Dr. Gaia Bernstein, co-director of the Gibbons Institute for Legal Science and Technology at Seton Hall University School of Law, who will discuss how lessons should be drawn from the tobacco and food industries; and Chris McKenna, CEO and founder of Protect Young Eyes, on the urgent government regulation needed to curb technology addiction.

The Human Change Campaign is proud to share its platform with Larissa May, Founder and CEO of

Leading Human Change commentators met to discuss what can be done alongside distinguished WEF members including Frank McCourt of McCourt Global and Julie Inman Grant, Australian eSafety Commissioner.

Human Change House will be open daily at Davos Promenade 49, with panels and receptions.
