What we are doing to help create a better internet...
Every aspect of the Safer Internet Centre - awareness rising, education, youth panel, helpline and hotline – is like putting the pieces of puzzle together to create a better internet.
To try to put this puzzle together just on our own is not as efficient as working together with partners – we need support and understanding form government and internet industry, information and opinions from children and youngsters and international exchange of best practice with other countries and their Safer Internet Centres.
We strive for the best by coordinating, networking, planning and executing everything that we think will help to create a better internet for everybody, but especially children.
