Safer Internet RO SIC: Romanian Safer Internet Centre

The objective of the Safer Internet Centre Romania is to build on the good progress of the ongoing Romanian Safer Internet Project .

The objective of the Safer Internet Centre Romania is to build on the good progress of the ongoing Romanian Safer Internet Project 2008-2010, adding value through continuous qualitative and quantitative development of actions and strategies. This means improving cooperation with the relevant national private and governmental bodies and policy makers in order to establish best European practices in Romania. The already established Hotline and Helpline structures, Youth Panel activities, awareness materials, and lobby actions will be extended targeting a larger-scale impact, stressing the importance of online literacy concepts next to online safety issues. The Consortium will give a European perspective through best practice exchanges, regional camps and conferences organised in collaboration with other Safer Internet Centers. European contribution will be enhanced by developing technological solutions in other European languages. Hotline and Helpline will focus on efficient exchange of notices within networks. The awareness activities will focus on empowering children (by extending the Youth Panel, developing regional structures for informative sessions and events, contests) and promoting digital citizenship, by introducing online education in schools and creating tutorials and awareness materials for child carers. Internet providers and Mobile Communication companies will internalize the concept of child online safety, through their direct participation by assuming the Code of Conduct for a Safer Internet Use.

The consortium is formed by: Save the Children Romania (has been developing, ever since 1990, social and educational programs for all children, child rights monitoring activities, paying special attention to children in difficulty), Positive Media (developer of genium.ro and sigur.info portals, dedicated for safe internet navigation, is involved in the promotion of several projects Pro-Life, against alcoholism, drug consumption, as well as support programs for the elderly, children and disadvantaged families), The Romanian Center for Missing and Sexually Exploited Children – FOCUS (has done an important contribution in the decrease of child disappearance and sexual exploitation phenomena through awareness campaigns for parents and children, mass media involvement, authorities and volunteers' activities).
