AWARENESS

Within the Insafe network of Safer Internet Centres (SICs), National Awareness Centres (NACs) focus on raising awareness and understanding of safer internet issues and emerging trends.

They run campaigns to empower children, young people, parents, carers and teachers with the skills, knowledge and strategies to stay safe online and take advantage of the opportunities that the internet and mobile technologies provide.

The network also works extensively with other stakeholders, such as the research community, industry and other NGOs, to extend the reach of key messages and awareness-raising actions.

On this page, you'll find a selection of articles corresponding to awareness-raising work.
