As part of the European Back2School campaign, and to celebrate the end of the Portuguese "Keep It Cool" summer campaign, the Portuguese Safer Internet Centre (SIC) invited all Portuguese users to download its "Back2School" resource pack. The pack provides information promoting safer and healthier behaviours on the internet, addressing all the six topics of the European Back2School campaign, namely sexting, cyberbullying, the Internet of Things (IoT), disturbing online content, fake news and grooming.

The images contained in the European Back2School resource pack were converted into printed postcards, with information and tips regarding the topic on the back of the postcard. Additionally, in the online version of the postcards, some resources from Portuguese SIC and its partners were added, so that people can easily share it.

Also, internally, the SIC distributed more than 250 Back2School kits to FCT co-workers,  containing a lunch bag, a SIC-branded power bank and one of six postcards.

You can find more information and Back2School resources on the InternetSegura.pt website.
