Safer Internet and Networking

National and International Perspectives
From 10.30 o' clock until 18.30 o' clock
The State Media Authority of Rhineland-Palatinate
Berlin, Germany

For several years, the European Union has been supporting both Internet ombudsmen (hotlines) and the awareness nodes for promoting media competence in the various individual European countries. The various activities of the Safer Internet Programme' in the EU have now united under a single roof in Germany as saferinternet.de'.

The Media Authority of Rhineland-Palatinate (LMK) has taken over the co-ordinating role for this association. Specifically, this means that the two hotlines jugendschutz.net and internet-beschwerdestelle.de, supported by eco - Association of the German Internet Industry and the Association of Voluntary Self-Regulating Multimedia Providers (FSM), the awareness node klicksafe, supported by the LMK and the Media Authority of North Rhine-Westphalia (LfM) and the helpline for children and young people, Nummer gegen Kummer e.V., will work together even more closely in future. Although the projects are aligned to deal with different needs, all aim to achieve the same result - increasing safety in the Internet for all users but especially for children and young people.

How close will this co-operation be in future? What will this mean for the European components of the project? And what roles will companies and providers play in building a safer Internet? These questions will be discussed with national and international experts at MediaColloquium 2008.

Please have a look at the Agenda here.
