Press release: Brussels, 7 October 2015: Well over 100 young people aged 9-17 years and 35 mentors from 15 different countries worldwide participated in the ENABLE Hackathon, launched in June 2015, to reflect on the causes and process of bullying and use their creative and coding skills to propose solutions.

Today, United Nations International Literacy Day, sees the full launch of the 2015 Insafe Back2School campaign, offering a range of free eSafety resources for teachers and educators. As technologies offer new opportunities for literacy in the 21st century, it is essential that a safer and accessible Internet is created for users across all ages.

Next year, we will focus on further exploring the role that multiple stakeholders - including you - have to play in achieving a safer and better internet. With a theme of "Play your part for a better internet!", join us on 9 February 2016 to celebrate the day.

The focus topic for this edition is Online extremism and radicalisation - you'll find a range of articles and resources from key stakeholders in the field looking at the issue.

Press release | Prague, 27 May 2015 The Insafe network of Safer Internet Centres begins a two-day meeting in Prague, exchanging knowledge and experience about the latest online issues and trends, considering what the future of technology holds and how it may impact the work of Awareness Centres and Helplines in Europe.

The Youth Manifesto publication, which outlines the ten key principles that European youth have identified as essential to creating a better internet for the future, is now available online!

For many young people in the early 21st century, their online personality, social interactions and activities are as important as their life in the physical world. Teachers, therefore, need to recognize this and help young people make the most of the opportunities online technologies and social media offer to develop key competences – and, crucially, become reflective and responsible citizens.

ENABLE is a two-year project co-funded by the European Commission, which has an over-riding mission to protect children's rights. The project aims to reduce bullying in schools, through in-depth investigation and implementation of impactful actions. The ENABLE public launch will take place in Athens on 11-12 March 2015.

Today more than 100 countries worldwide, including all 28 countries of the European Union, are celebrating Safer Internet Day (SID) for the twelfth year running.

Building on its past expertise on the topic of e-Skills and on the success of the previous campaigns, DIGITALEUROPE together with European Schoolnet have been successfully awarded the bid to manage the new e-Skills for Jobs 2015 – 2016 Communication and Awareness raising campaign.
