Operation Uncool – collecting YOUth's thoughts on uncool behaviour online
- BIK Team/ITU COP
"What do you think about uncool behaviour online?" is the question that entices YOUth from all over the world to get on board the Operation Uncool initiative. This is actually an online consultation that seeks to collect views, ideas and thoughts from YOUth on cyberbullying by means of four missions run on the RErights platform. Each mission asks YOUth to go through a range of activities and answer questions related to the topic of the mission.
The outcomes of the consultation will be summarised into a report and presented at a high-level meeting of the ITU Council Working Group on Child Online Protection which will take place on 2 February 2017 in Geneva. ITU is the United Nations specialised agency for information and communications technologies (ICTs) and their Child Online Protection (COP) unit aims to create safe and empowering online experiences for children and young people around the world.
YOUth have a great opportunity to have a say and contribute to adults' understanding of your and your peers' online experiences with bullying. Sign up to Operation Uncool and embark on your first mission!
