Our story and experts

Devices are front and centre - and we know making good choices isn't always easy! But we won't stop until the world feels as positive about tech as we do.

Digital Awareness was founded by Emma and Charlotte Robertson. As digital rights activists, the sisters can regularly be seen campaigning in the media, in parliament and in schools and organisations around the world to empower young people to survive and thrive online.

Prior to this, as a YouTuber, Charlotte's videos have been viewed and shared by millions and has featured in TV documentaries exploring the lives of influencers. Emma's background was in social media consultancy, managing the online reputations of brands, celebrities and business leaders.

Their love for technology coupled with their passion for tackling issues such as online abuse, sexting and addiction led them to build a team of experts who are on the ground in schools and working with corporations around the world to support families and young people with  their online journeys.
