E-COM 4 CHILDREN in the Conference on the 21st Century Consumer in Palmela (Portugal)

APSI, the Portuguese Association for the Promotion of Child Safety, on behalf of the e-COM4CHILDREN team, was at the Conference “The 21st century consumer – Digital literacy and the new consumer profile in Portugal” on 13 December, in Palmela (Portugal). The purpose of this conference, organised by the Palmela Municipal Consumer Centre with the support of the General Consumer Directorate of Portugal, was to reflect on the role of the 21st century consumer in Portugal and the challenges they face, in order to establish the basis to develop local and national policies, bringing them closer to the consumer and meeting their needs.


Sandra Nascimento, from APSI, explained how the tools developed in the framework of the e-COM4CHILDREN project can help consumers improve their skills to face the challenge of the online purchase of safe children’s products.


This action was a great opportunity to disseminate the project in Portugal among more than 60 attendees belonging to consumer associations, to the Ministry of Commerce and Consumer Protection of Portugal, authorities, universities, judges, students of law and tourism, and consumers in general.
