Speaking at the summit Duke said, “Manchester has had a tough year, and I personally stand in awe of the way the people of Manchester have united in bravery and support of one another. This community is a great example to all of us, wherever we are from. Parents like Catherine and I are raising the first generation of digitally-immersed children – and this gives us many reasons to be optimistic about the impact of technology on childhood. What we cannot do, however, is pretend that the impact of digital technology is all positive or, indeed, even understood. We have put the most powerful information technology in human history into the hands of our children – yet we do not yet understand its impact on adults, let alone the very young. Families can embrace technology with confidence when they can access the best support and advice. We can be hopeful about the future of our society when we all know that protecting the essence of childhood remains our collective and urgent priority.”
