Overview

The Screen Time Action Network at Fairplay (the Action Network) (fairplayforkids.org) is the leading global coalition of children’s screen time activists and advocates working to reduce excessive technology use harming children, adolescents, and families. The Action Network educates members and nonmembers on the business model of big tech, the root cause of screen time challenges. We offer curated resources to professionals, educators, and families, host 7 Work Groups where members collaborate on advocacy and resource creation, and work with impact partners to promote our agenda supporting children’s health and wellbeing in the digital age.

 

Our home is Fairplay, the leading watchdog of the children’s media and marketing industries and the only organization dedicated to ending child-targeted marketing. Our work routinely makes headlines around the world, and our advocacy has forced some of the world’s biggest corporations – including Google, Disney, Mattel, and Amazon – to change their marketing and data collection practices. Fairplay is a fiscally sponsored organization of TSNE (tsne.org).
