Poland launches new harmful content campaign on SID 2017
- Polish Safer Internet Centre
As part of our ongoing roundup of Safer Internet Day (SID) 2017 activities across the globe, we hear from the Polish Safer Internet Centre on the launch of a new campaign.
On the occasion of Safer Internet Day 2017, a new social campaign of the Polish Safer Internet Centre (SIC) was launched during a central conference held in Warsaw.
The slogan of the campaign is "Protect your child on the internet. It is important. And fairly simple". The campaign is aimed at raising awareness of parents of children of pre-school and primary school age about protecting the youngest users against contact with harmful content online.
The main material is a song by a young girl telling about her encounters online with pornography, violence and offensive language. There is an animated cartoon clip as well as short TV versions, while a website, dzieckowsieci.pl, and brochure have also been created.
The materials promote five rules that parents should follow to help their children stay safer online:
- Set rules for using the internet with your child.
- Make sure you share only positive and safe content with children.
- Talk to your children about their experiences online.
- Configure the safety settings of your device.
- Install parental control software.
The campaign is accompanied by special step-by-step video tutorials for parents that explain how to set up parental control features in the popular operating systems of Windows, Android and Apple iOS.
