Belgium

Belgium is doing pretty well in the field of positive online content, from single initiatives (such as positive content vlogging competitions), over implementation in school curricula and empowering websites. A mix of industry (such as VRT), government (such as Mediawijs, a partner of Child Focus) and NGOs (such as Child Focus) are contributing to positive online content initiatives.
