Safer Internet RU SIC: Development and maintenance of the Russian Safer Internet Centre as a member of European network of Safer Internet Centres

The Russian Safer Internet Centre will promote safer use of the internet by ensuring public awareness with a particular focus on the distribution of child sexual abuse images, grooming and bullying

The activities of the Russian Safer Internet Centre are aimed at promoting safer use of the internet and other communication technologies through ensuring public awareness, fighting against illegal content, harmful contact and conduct, with a particular focus on combating online distribution of child sexual abuse material, grooming and bullying. These aims will be achieved through: a) awareness raising activities (implemented by awareness campaigns in media supported by national authorities), regional and international meetings and conferences, active participation in Europen-level events b) hotline to which the public can report illegal content online c) helpline where users can obtain advice on how to deal with illegal content and harmful contact and conduct.

The consortium consists of Russian NGOs: Regional Public Centre for Internet Technologies (ROCIT), "Angel Coalition" and "Soprotivlenie (Resistance) human rights movement".

The target groups will be children, parents, teachers and carers - not only as one-way information users, but as active partners and contributers for development and implementation of safer internet policy, awareness-raising campaigns, tools and materials. With the support of the users the Safer Internet Centre will develop already established dialogue and information exchange with govermental structures, ISPs, regulators NGOs, mass media, user organisations, educational institutions etc.  

Concerning the European dimension, the Safer Internet Centre will concentrate on: a) elaboration of the proposals and new ideas on how to equip the target groups with the necessary knowledge b) predicting prospective ways of inappropriate usage of the internet and other communication technologie to help EU countries to fight against new threats c) exchange of best practice and development of methods and tools for fruitful cooperation within the European network, including participation in meetings.

As a result a nation-wide Russian Safer Internet Centre for promoting safer use of the internet, involving most significantt players of the internet community will be developed with strong support from the national authoroties and in cooperation with key stakeholders.
