Join us for Safer Internet Day 2015
Media and information literacy week
For the second consecutive year we will celebrate Safer Internet Day a whole week during the Media and Information Literacy week. During the week we will raise various issues regarding the media use of children and young people. We will launch new material in connection with selected themes, and among other things focus on libraries as one main target group. Another theme is the media use of children with cognitive disabilities.
More information about SID and the MIL week can be found on our web site www.statensmedierad.se, as the week unfolds. You can also subscribe to our newsletter and follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Swedish Safer Internet Centre
The Swedish Media Council is a national authority working with children's and young people's media situation, with the aim to reduce the risks of harmful effects of the media and to empower the children in their media use. The council covers all moving image media, i.e. the internet, film, television, computer and video games. The Council is also responsible for the Swedish film classification to determine whether films are liable to harm the well-being of children in different age groups.
BRIS is an NGO who supports children in distress and acts as a link between children, adults and the community. All of BRIS's support services are based on volunteer work; its financial support comes from corporate and individual donors and to a small extent from governmental grants. All volunteers have experience working with children and young people and have passed the BRIS training programme.
