Czech Safer Internet Centre

Awareness centre

Description:

Awareness-raising activities start each year in February during the Safer Internet Day (SID) celebrations.

The peak comes during autumn when a new set of resources are usually introduced and made available to the main target groups – children, teachers, parents, social workers and LEA staff. Safer-online, the site which contains the repository of resources, is promoted a creative way.
