by Jutta Croll, Stiftung Digitale Chancen
The conference 'Young People in the Internet and Mobile Age: Safe and Empowered' provided an opportunity for Egypt to get first-hand knowledge and experience about the world’s best practices in internet safety. Stakeholders from all over the world came to Cairo to exchange experiences, identify risks and share responsibilities on the issue.
One of the initiatives presented to the audience as a best practice example from Europe was the Youth Protection Roundtable. Jutta Croll on behalf of the YPRT emphasized the need for a dialogue between all stakleholders and recommended to strengthen the efforts to provide for training of digital literacy for users of all age groups. Especially in view of a total of about 10 percent of the population only who yet have access to the Internet a widespread access and awareness campaign involving all types of educational institution like schools, libraries and IT-centers is necessary to raise the percentage of digital literate people in Egypt.
