About Project Cyberethics: Cyprus Safer Internet Center
Overall objective(s)

The awareness centres' main aim is to develop awareness raising material, organize campaigns and information sessions for children and young people, parents, carers, social workers and teachers to enable children and young people to make responsible use of on-line technologies. Safer Internet Centres will coordinate and carry out awareness actions and programmes in close cooperation

with all relevant actors at European, regional and local levels.
Specific objective(s)
  • devise inventive, attention-grabbing and informative awareness campaigns using the most

appropriate media, taking into account best practice and experience in other countries, which may involve the participation of children and young people;

  • promote awareness of parents and children on online positive content and experience and pay

particular attention to awareness raising actions towards young children and children at risk1;

  • take into account the results of research and knowledge-enhancement projects funded by the Safer

Internet programme;

  • inform the intended target groups about other activities funded by the Safer Internet programme2,
  • use cost-effective means of distribution of information to large numbers of users (multiplier

organisations, electronic dissemination channels, mass media, information material distributed to schools and to internet cafés);

  • evaluate the impact of the awareness campaigns on the target groups and provide qualitative and

quantitative feedback at European level on the national achievements to improve the impact and effectiveness of the European network;

  • establish and maintain formal or informal partnerships and promote dialogue and exchange of

information with key players (government agencies, press and media groups, ISP associations, user organisations, education stakeholders) and actions in their country on to safer use of the internet and other online technologies;

  • actively cooperate with other Safer Internet Centres in the European network by exchanging

information about best practices, participating in meetings and designing and implementing a European approach;

  • take an active part in European-level events and in the organisation of regional and local events for

Safer Internet Day;

  • where appropriate, support preparations for the Safer Internet Forum by holding national events on

the topics to be discussed there;

  • where appropriate, cooperate with other actions under the Safer Internet programme;
  • where considered appropriate by the European Commission, cooperate with non-EU countries by exchanging information about best practices, sharing awareness tools, participating in international meetings, and hosting visits.
