The ‚Kirchenamt der Evangelischen Kirche in Deutschland’ will host the conference ‚Linked up with the world – children and young people make virtual experiences’ in Berlin in collaboration with the ‚Erfurter Netcode’, the ‚Hans-Bredow-Institut für Medienforschung’ and the ‚Fachgruppe Medienpädagogik in der DGPuK’ .

Children and young people broaden their view and make experiences in virtual and real spaces as they grow older. They get new impressions but also may face harmful content or gain unpleasant experiences. Issues like how the young people use the Internet, whereof they are fascinated, what they expect and actually find on the Internet will take centre stage at this two-day conference. Findings of current surveys about online behaviour will be presented and risks or problems while using the Internet will be discussed.
