So when the authorities crack down on sources of child pornography, we’re happy to hear it. But unfortunately this isn’t always possible. So we step in to help. Whenever, and wherever, we find Child Sexual Abuse Images online, we block the site immediately. We do this in all nine countries we operate in.
Mostly, our buddies at Interpol provide us with a blocking list that we can act upon. But we don’t stop there. We even check and take action in our own organisation, as anybody who works at Tele2 will confirm. Don’t get us wrong, we love our people. But we believe young people should be able to enjoy a safe online experience. And for that matter, so should you.
As every youngster knows, greater power comes with great responsibility
As we grew up with stories of Pippi Longstocking (the strongest girl in the world) you could say this is in our DNA. Or perhaps it’s just because Tele2 is a company with a young mindset. Either way, we want to use any power we gain to make life better for young people.
In just a few years we’ve reached out to kids in seven countries. Over seventy-thousand youngsters now have better access to education and nearly half a million children are living healthier lives. So if you’ve got any bright ideas on how to help, check out what we’re doing at Reach for Change.
Of course, Tele2 isn’t silly enough to think that this is going to be enough responsibility for one of the fastest growing European telecoms. But it’s a good start. Now, go ahead. Tell us what you think we should be doing to make the world a better place for young people. We challenge you!
