At this year’s Youth Protection Conference in Parndorf, state councilors responsible for youth policy spoke in favor of more protection for young people at games.

Minister of State for Youth Claudia Blackholm (ÖVP) has announced that regulations for individual federal states will be harmonized and a separate task force will deal with the Framework Conditions for the Games. Volunteer work and psychological support were among the topics of the conference.

According to the state councils, the games require the protection of minors

After digital games fully reach the daily lives of young people, appropriate protection is required for young people. “The time has come for that, because anyone who discusses the terms of the Games Framework within five years can announce the results by fax immediately,” Plakolm emphasized.

Young people need good prospects

said Daniela Winkler (SPÖ), youth advisor for Burgenland. More emphasis should be placed on volunteering and the Volunteer Social Year in the future.
