What we are doing to mark the 20th anniversary of Safer Internet Day…
Betternet is a project by the Belgian Safer Internet Centre, represented by Child Focus, Conseil Supérieur de l’éducation aux Médias, Média Animation and Mediawijs. Through media literacy initiatives for professionals, a helpline and a hotline, we work together towards a better internet for all children in Belgium.
Awareness-raising activities include the development of pedagogical tools, trainings, campaigns and materials for professionals working with children in their daily practice, i.e teachers, educators, librarians, youth leaders and coaches, parents, etc.
In order to reach our goal, we actively involve children and young people in the development of pedagogical material and tools to be sure that these tools respond to their needs and reflect their media practices. We believe that making the internet a better place for all children is a shared responsibility, therefore we also engage in dialogue and cooperation with industry, policymakers and all the stakeholders that want to join forces towards that common goal.
