As young people become increasingly engaged with digital spaces, it is not surprising that many are turning to digital sources to seek information about bodies, sex and relationships. This new reality comes with both opportunities and challenges. This technical brief summarises the findings of two reviews commissioned by UNESCO in 2019. The first is a desk review of the evidence for the use of digital resources to deliver sexuality education for young people, conducted by the Institute of Development Studies (UK). The review aimed to explore the extent to which digital content can influence knowledge, attitudes and practices of young people 10-24 years old and the potential for digital spaces to be used to add value to the traditional delivery of CSE. The second review involved primary research with young people around the world led by Restless Development, a youth led international NGO.
