This year, no less than 38 young people involved with national Safer Internet Centres (SICs) from all over Europe will represent the voices of the youth on online safety, digital literacy, and internet governance issues.

As of today, through a series of online meetings, participants start actively preparing their session by sharing their respective perspectives on better and safer internet issues with their peers, agreeing on key themes, and preparing awareness materials - in particular videos - on these topics.  

Traditionally, the BIK Youth Panel is organised as a face-to-face event, in the days preceding Safer Internet Forum. However, due to the health crisis ad restrictions imposed on travel, last year the BIK Youth Panel took place online. This year’s edition will take place online as well, on Monday, 4 and Tuesday, 5 October 2021. During these two days, the young people will be able to finalise their awareness materials and rehearse their presentations for the Safer Internet Forum.
