The Estonian Safer Internet Centre (SIC) has been successfully cooperating with schools as well as with kindergarteners. During recent years, more than 750 Smartly on the Web training events have been organised all over Estonia for 43,687 children and students, 4,603 teachers and 2,381 parents.
Each February, the Estonian SIC celebrates Safer Internet Day by organising different awareness-raising events and campaigns during the whole month. It has organised successful conferences for teachers, parents and specialists working with children, as well as special events for children and young people. The Estonian SIC has encouraged kindergartens, schools and youth centres to join and to celebrate Safer Internet Day by organising thematic events in their organisation or institution. During the last two years a very good response has been achieved, receiving more than 200 reports about their activities each year.
The Estonian Safer Internet Centre (SIC) is a joint initiative of three organisations: Estonian Union for Child Welfare, Information Technology Foundation for Education and Estonian Police and Border Guard Board. A direct cooperation partner for the Estonian SIC is the Estonian Social Insurance Board.
