The work carried out by the Norwegian Safer Internet Centre (SIC) is well founded in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) - in terms of right to information, expression, participation and last, but not least, the right to protection. The issues raised by children and young people's use of digital media, in many cases, challenges several of these rights at the same time.
Leaning on knowledge gained from facts, surveys and contact with the target groups, the SIC offers a balanced and nuanced view concerning benefits, risks and harm, and strives to maintain all of these rights at the same time.
The Norwegian Media Authority is the national coordinator of the Norwegian Safer Internet Centre (SIC). Along with the helpline, Cross My Heart, the SIC aims to ensure children and young people have a safe digital life. The NSIC's network consists of more than 30 collaborating partners from ministries, non-profit and voluntary organisations, businesses and industry organisations - all working for the same goal.
