Embracing Digital Wellness: Saturn joins The Inspired Internet Pledge

June 20, 2024

Saturn’s goal is to provide a powerful utility that can alleviate the stress of time management, and help students become more productive and engaged in their communities.

In our journey to empower young people with tools that enhance productivity and balance, we are proud to declare our commitment to the Inspired Internet Pledge, spearheaded by the Digital Wellness Lab at Boston Children’s Hospital. The pledge is an industry-wide initiative to make the internet a safer and healthier place for everyone, especially young people and it provides a framework for us to take measurable, and meaningful actions to support positive mental and emotional wellbeing outcomes on and offline.

We want to recognize the importance of having a healthy relationship with technology. We understand that the digital landscape can be overwhelming, especially for young people navigating the complexities of high school life. By joining the Inspired Internet Pledge, we are reaffirming our dedication to fostering a positive digital experience that prioritizes well-being.

So, what exactly is the Inspired Internet Pledge?

It's a collective effort to promote digital wellness and responsible technology usage among individuals, families, and communities. Pledge signatories commit to action aligned with three core principles over the course of each pledge year: tuning in for emotional well-being, listening to and acting on insights from people who have experienced harm online, and sharing lessons collaboratively across the technology industry. 

By adhering to the principles set forth by the Digital Wellness Lab, we pledge to prioritize mindfulness, balance, and intentionality in our app's design, functionality as well as on our safety policies and processes.

Here's how we're putting this pledge into action:

  1. Mindful Design: We believe that every feature of our app should serve a purpose and enhance the user experience without compromising mental health. From intuitive interfaces, clear abuse reporting mechanisms, to thoughtful notifications, we are committed to designing with mindfulness in mind.

  2. Promoting Balance: High school life is a whirlwind of activities, deadlines, and social engagements. Our calendar app is designed to help you stay organized and on top of your schedule, but we also emphasize the importance of taking breaks, unplugging, and prioritizing self-care.

  3. Empowering Users: We believe in empowering our users to make informed choices about their digital habits. Through educational resources, comprehensive content reporting tools, and transparent privacy practices, we aim to equip young people with the tools they need to navigate the digital world with confidence.

  4. Community Engagement: We're not just building an app; we're building a community. Through partnerships with online safety experts, civil society organizations, and mental health advocates, we're committed to fostering meaningful connections and promoting digital wellness on a broader scale.

Join us on this journey towards a healthier, happier digital future. Together, we can harness the power of technology to inspire, create, and thrive while staying true to ourselves and our well-being.
