Bulgarian Safer Internet Centre
About our SID activities
As a tradition, the central Safer Intrnet Day (SID) event will be designed and moderated by the Safer Inteernet Centre (SIC) Youth Panel. In 2021, a challenging year in many aspects, the issue of fake news was considered to be central in the light of the motto "Together for a better internet". It will be addressed in the form of debates between a couple of youth panellists, one formulating a fake belief, and the other debunking it. The event will be held online and others will participate in an open discussion about media and digital literacy.
What we are doing to support the SID 2021 slogan of "Together for a better internet"…
The internet is for all, so to make it a better place is the responsibility of all.
The Bulgarian Safer Internet Centre (SIC) was established back in 2006 by the NGO Applied Research and Communications Fund. At first, a hotline was launched. In 2008, another NGO - Association Parents joined to add an awareness node and in 2011 a helpline was started. An advisory board consisting of 30 public and private institutions, organisations and bodies and a Youth Panel are assisting the SIC in defining strategies, conducting initiatives and developing useful awareness, teaching and training materials.
