In February 2019, Ministry of Community Development and Telecommunications and Digital Government Regulatory Authority (TDRA) launched jointly KidX, a digital platform for children. The platform provides an interactive digital environment and uses games and virtual reality technologies to raise children’s awareness of the UAE government, its functions and services. It encourages them to express their views on the services, as well as deal with smart government and smart cities.
The platform engages the children in an adventure format, while urging them to be positive and supportive members of the community’s happiness. The platform’s concept also takes into consideration the rights of the child, especially the right to access all information that brings knowledge to them as set forth in the Wadeema’s Law. In addition to the website, KidX is also available through the applications on Google Play and iTunes.
