More than seventy countries around the world are dedicating a day to Internet safety, an initiative created by the European Union. More than 100 institutions participated in the Safer Internet Day activities in Germany, which aim to support and coordinate initiatives that promote and encourage a measured and safe use of the Internet among young people. If previous editions have focused on cybermobbing and data protection, this year the theme is “Puberty 2.0: growing up in a sexualized world”.
Today’s youth are often referred to as the “Porno Generation”, as it is assumed that their search for “naked facts” is relentless. The reality, however, is not as clear as this statement. How to handle this issue efficiently and carefully is handled by the European klicksafe project, in which both teachers and students collaborate.
