- Luxembourgish Safer Internet Centre

- Bulgarian Safer Internet Centre
Over the past few years, society in Bulgaria has been affected by the ever-growing wave of aggressive, offensive and discriminative viewpoints, including xenophobia and racism. This flood of hate speech via online media, internet forums and social media has, on several occasions, spilled over into different forms of physical violence. Children are exposed to hate speech from a very young age due to their early entry into the digital world. An active campaign against online hate speech, especially that which directly involves or influences children and young people, therefore became one of the priorities of the Bulgarian Safer Internet Centre (SIC) in 2016.

In celebration of the United Nations International Day of Tolerance which took place on 16 November 2016, here on the Better Internet for Kids (BIK) portal we reflect on the issue of tolerance online. During the month of November, we will be focusing on the importance of fostering mutual understanding and respect in the online world, while promoting initiatives to tackle hate speech, cyberbullying and other forms of online abuse.
