Better Internet for Children

The Council of the EU adopted at a meeting yesterday its conclusions on the European strategy for a Better Internet for Children. (see our earlier posts on this subject: Children Online, or EU needs to better monitor this new reality, or Big online wolf) It endorses European Commission's proposal while recommending actions to be taken in the areas of: assuring more quality of online content for children (understood as the content that benefits children in some way in addition to being attractive, usable, reliable and safe); stepping-up awareness and empowerment (e.g. by including the teaching of online safety and digital competences in schools; by further developing media literacy; by improving parental control tools). The Council expects the final report on this subject from the Coalition in January 2013.
