CyberEthics GI

Objectives

The first objective of the project was to implement a strong campaign, under the acronym "CyberEthics" concerning the safe use of Internet in Cyprus, which would serve the needs of all people that live on the island (i.e., also Turkish Cypriots and other minorities) and address not only issues of pornography, but also racism (currently on the rise in Cyprus), gender discrimination and inappropriate use of peoples' images. The second objective was to engage in the process actors from the government and the civil society, thus contributing towards the eradication of cyber crime through informed actions of European citizens and public institutions that aim to change behaviours, mentality and attitudes, giving special emphasis to rural and less developed areas of the country. Taking advantage of the CNTI's expertise and international network in mobile technologies attention was also be given to unethical/illegal usages of all new online technologies (i.e., mobile and broadband content, online games, peer-to-peer file transfer and all other forms of real-time communication).
