Safer Internet Day 2020 in France – Launch of the FamiNum app

On Tuesday, 11 February 2020, Safer Internet Day was marked in 170 countries around the world – the French Safer Internet Centre (SIC) was part of the celebrations, with one specificity however; in France, Safer Internet Day lasts for an entire month.

Safer Internet Day was launched in the presence of Adrien Taquet, Secretary of State for Children,  and the three branches of the French Safer Internet Centre: Internet Sans Crainte, Association e-Enfance and Point de Contact. In this event, the French SIC introduced the featured campaigns and resources unveiled for the 2020 edition of SID.

A key moment of this SID 2020 event was the launch of the FamiNum app, which was designed by Tralalere in collaboration with the National Union of Family Associations (Union Nationale des Associations Familiales, UNAF), the 3-6-9-12 Association and AXA Prévention. This application was designed to be part of a 360° plan of actions aiming to shift digital education from the school to the home. As such, FamiNum aims to help parents creating their own digital family charter, by offering a customisable and intuitive tool allowing them to (re-)establish a family dialogue around digital practices by using constructive discourses, as opposed to the usual conflictual approach.

Internet Sans crainte was proud to present the prevention campaign designed by French psychiatrist Serge Tisseron and his 3-6-9-12 Association. Elaborated by Internet Sans Crainte, this initiative aims to reduce the distance that screens create between parents and their children with a simple and impactful printed campaign.

The French SIC also launched the new version of the Stop la Violence serious game created by Tralalere for Internet Sans Crainte, in partnership with MAE Prévention and the French Telecoms Federation (Fédération Française des Télécoms). Stop la Violence is an immersive and interactive tool aiming to encourage students to take action against bullying at school. It is now officially referenced by the Ministry of Education.

During SID 2020, a high school class from Normandy experimented the new version of Stop la Violence. It was a successful experience since it enabled interesting discussions in a good atmosphere. The French SIC also organised a live workshop for pupils from an elementary school, and some of their parents, which gave rise to very interesting exchanges.
