We are not alone in this
The Safer Internet Center CR (SIC CZ) cooperates with a number of partners at the national, cross-border and international level in its activities. We are very happy that the activities of our prevention center, two helplines and the STOPonline.cz hotline synergistically complement the activities of other state, private and non-profit entities at home and in Europe.
The "Advisory Board" of SIC CZ is a key platform for sharing experiences, searching for synergies and mutual support. Its members are more than 30 institutions, organizations and companies that have decided to devote part of their energy, enthusiasm and skills to the benefit of the Internet and safer technologies for children and adolescents. While selected activities are carried out in harmony with each other, others are at least mutually informed and we work together to bring them to the public's attention. Examples of successful cooperation are the activities held during the annual Safer Internet Day, the participation of partners in seminars and conferences organized by one of the members of the Advisory Board, the mutual sharing of capacities for the implementation of awareness-raising and educational events, or direct cooperation on specific projects and media campaigns.
Cross-border cooperation is developing with Slovakia to our great joy. We have been in regular contact since May 2022, when a seminar organised by INHOPE took place in Bratislava. We share knowledge and experience, discuss selected topics and talk about possible joint activities in the coming years. The overarching goal of SIC CZ is to help Slovak colleagues with the establishment of the Safer Internet Centre SK and its establishment in the international organisations Insafe (bringing together national SICs) and INHOPE (bringing together national hotlines).
At the international level, SIC CZ is primarily involved as a member of both the above-mentioned organizations. Together with other European and non-European Safer Internet Centers and hotlines, we regularly identify and solve current challenges in the area of a safer Internet for children and dealing with illegal content on the Internet. We are part of selected steering committees and participate in the preparation and running of major events such as the Safer Internet Forum or Safer Internet Day. An interesting experience for us is dealing with the world's leading providers of digital services and platforms, who are increasingly aware of the need to set up and secure their solutions so that they become comfortable and safe for children and young people. Last but not least, we try to contribute to the process of preparing selected national and European legislation.
In general, it is good to see that the issues of safe use of modern technologies, spreading awareness about the challenges of the digital world or media and digital education resonate across society and we can, together with others, further develop them for the benefit of our children and adolescents.
We would like to thank all partners for their cooperation in such an important topic as the safety of children and young people on the Internet.
