Safer Internet DE SIC: Safer Internet Centre Germany

The German Safer Internet Centre, a long-standing initiative, covers awareness campaigns, hotlines and a helpline service.

The Safer Internet Centre Germany has existed in its present form since 2008, uniting projects that were previously funded separately within the framework of the Safer Internet Programme. It encompasses the Awareness Centre klicksafe, the internet hotlines internet-beschwerdestelle.de (IBSDE) and jugendschutz.net, and the helpline for children and adolescents, Nummer gegen Kummer. klicksafe is a mutual project of the Central Authority for Media and Communication (LMK) Rhineland-Palatinate (project coordination) and the Media Authority for North Rhine-Westphalia (LfM) promoting media literacy in handling the internet and new media. Both IBSDE, a mutual effort of the Association of the German Internet Industry eco and the Voluntary Self-Monitoring of Multimedia Providers FSM, and jugendschutz.net are hotlines accepting complaints on illegal and harmful internet content. Nummer gegen Kummer is a helpline for children and adolescents, offering information about safe surfing and advice on how to deal with situations such as cyber-bullying.

Together with the rising popularity of new technologies (Internet, mobile phones), the numbers of risks that young people and children may face when they are surfing online is growing. The main objectives of the Safer Internet Centre Germany therefore are to promote the safer use of the internet and other communication technologies, particularly for children and young people; to educate users, particularly children, parents, youth workers, teachers, and educators in this regard; to fight against illegal content and harmful conduct online. The objectives will be achieved through the close collaboration of all four components of the Safer Internet Centre, taking advantage of the partners’ expertise in their respective fields of work as described above. All four components will work together on furthering cooperation with relevant organisations on the national and European level. They will be involved in Safer Internet Day, and be active in the common Saferinternet DE Advisory Board and Youth Panel.
