The Commission has launched a public consultation to identify the most effective ways of making the online environment and communication technologies safe for users, in particular children. The current Safer Internet plus programme will end in 2008 and the Commission is conducting this consultation for creating a basis for deciding whether to propose a follow-up programme from 2009 to 2013 and how best to address issues relating to online technologies in the future. The public consultation was launched on 12 April 2007 and will be open until 7 June 2007.

The consultation is structured around three topics covering:

  • illegal content
  • harmful content
  • user-generated content and on-line communication.
