On 30-31 May 2022 in Brussels, Belgium, Safe Online brought together over 40 grantees and partners from across the world alongside donors, and industry representatives from the Tech Coalition in a unique opportunity aligned around a common vision to end online child sexual exploitation and abuse (CSEA).
Safe Online held its first grantee convening from 8-10 December 2019 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The grantee convening provided a platform for organisations across the world to come together, share their resources and experiences, and strengthen the field of child online safety. Nearly 50 individuals attended the convening, representing 38 grantee organisations from 33 projects.
Since Safe Online’s inception, we have held digital events for grantees to learn from each other from wherever they are across the globe. In July 2021, Safe Online held its 12th knowledge exchange event, which focused on the latest data and trends on online CSEA in the context of the pandemic. Earlier webinar series may be found below:
As part of Together to #ENDviolence, experts came together to prepare a prioritised set of policy proposals to end violence against children. The result is six game-changing policy proposals, backed by evidence and research on what works to protect children. Read the policy proposal on Making the Internet Safe for Children.
Every year we engage global communities to celebrate Safer Internet Day through our media platforms to raise awareness, share resources and encourage everyone to take action to keep children safe online. We continue to facilitate joint advocacy efforts, for instance, on the EU regulations on privacy affecting the safety of children online.
The COVID-19 pandemic led to an unprecedented rise in screen time. More and more families began relying on technology and digital solutions to keep children learning, entertained and connected to the outside world, but not all children have the necessary knowledge, skills and resources to keep themselves safe online. Safe Online together with our key partners launched a technical note and a resource pack to support governments, ICT industries, educators and parents.
We are here to ensure every child and young person grows in to the digital world feeling safe, and is protected from harm.
We support, champion, and invest in innovative partners from the public, private, and third sectors working towards the same objective.
We believe in equipping guardians and young people with the skills to understand and see danger themselves once accessing digital experiences without supervision.
