Our official guide to making a Parent Pact in your school

A good way to start a discussion in your school is to bring in an independent expert to give a talk about smartphones, social media, and digital wellbeing. We’ve compiled an evolving list of expert speakers who give talks in schools. Please email us if you know of other experts we can add to this list.

We don’t have all the answers, and the best strategies and tactics will be revealed as the movement grows. These guides are a work in progress, and we’ll be updating them as we learn more and the conversation develops.
