COFACE Families Europe

About our SID activities

COFACE has participated in a number of European Projects such as ENABLE, SIP-BENCH, and Digital Citizenship, and has coordinated the #DeleteCyberbullying project through which a number of practical tools were developed to help prevent cyberbullying. We have created a short educational video "Cyberbullying: there is a way out!" available in 11 languages.

What we are doing to support the SID 2020 slogan of "Together for a better internet"…

As ever-younger children start using connected devices, there is a growing need to ensure that they enjoy a positive online experience and develop the necessary skills and resilience to cope with the content or contacts they may come across online. Far from stopping at safety concerns, COFACE Families Europe advocates for further consideration of key challenges such as privacy and exploitation of user data, online advertising, online business models, cybersecurity and the new issues raised by developments in Big Data, algorithms and the Internet of Things (IoT). And finally, COFACE Families Europe also informs, raises awareness and campaigns on the social impact of digitalisation to reflect the rapid digital changes impacting families.
