The main successes of the Polish Safer Internet Centre (SIC) are the international conference "Keeping children and young people safe online" and the decentralised model of Safer Internet Day (SID) organisation in Poland.
The international conference "Keeping children and young people safe online" has been organised since 2007. Each year, the event gathers approximately 600 professionals: pedagogues, teachers, psychologists, law enforcement, industry representatives and policy makers. The two-day conference consists of plenary sessions as well as workshops and is enriched by expert debate. The conference is also accessible via the provided streaming. After the event, the recorded speeches are available on the conference website at saferinternet.pl/conference.
The decentralised model of SID organisation includes encouraging schools and other institutions all over Poland to organise educational events. Promotional packages containing educational materials, SID posters and so on are sent to local organisers. The decentralised SID model, promoted since 2006, turned out to be a huge success - each year the number of reported initiatives in the whole country increases (4,600 in 2020, from 39,77 in 2019). The full list of actions can be found on the event website at www.dbi.pl.
Digital Youth Forum, an event organised for youth and by youth is becoming more and more popular each year. In 2019, we had over 400 youth participating on the spot and over 11,000 watching the live transmission within the "Organise Digital Youth Forum in your school" action.
