The Norwegian Media Authority SIC-NO
Safer Internet Centre Norway is based upon a close cooperation between Red Cross' helpline «Kors på halsen» (Cross my heart) and The Norwegian Media Authority. Together we aim to ensure that children across Norway are empowered to make sensible choices in their everyday digital life. We give advices and produce educational and awareness-raising material and tools that can be used by children and young people, parents and teachers.
The Norwegian Media Authority is the national coordinator for initiatives regarding online child safety. Knowledge about children and young people's digital lives are vital to ensure effective awareness raising and the Norwegian Media Authority has since 2003 performed bi-annual surveys amongst children, young people and parents. In addition to the co-funding from the European Commission, the Norwegian Media Authority receives funding from four different ministries to coordinate work on a national level.
