Michele Uva, UEFA’s director of social and environmental sustainability, addresses Human Change panel about football’s potential for protecting children from the misuse of social media and digital devices.

Football has a significant role to play in safeguarding children from the negative consequences of digital addiction for young lives.

That was the message delivered by Michele Uva, UEFA’s director of social and environmental sustainability to a discussion panel organised by the Human Change campaign in Davos, Switzerland, on Wednesday during the World Economic Forum.

The global advocacy initiative, launched earlier this week, unites international experts around a common commitment to raise awareness of the risks posed by social media and digital devices to children’s mental well-being.
