Objectives

The first main objective of the project was the unification of the Hotline with the Awareness Center and the second the establishment of the Helpline. More specifically the Awareness Nodes devised cohesive, hard-hitting and targeted awareness campaigns using the most appropriate media, taking into account best practice and experience in other countries and involved the participation of children and young people through youth panels. Additionally the Awareness Nodes established and maintained formal and informal partnerships and promoted dialogue and exchange of information with key players (i.e. government agencies, press and media groups, ISP associations) and actions relating to safer use of internet and other online technologies. The Awareness Center actively cooperated with other national nodes in the European network by the exchange of information about best practices, participated in meetings, designed and implemented a European approach and took an active part in European-level events and in the organisation of regional and local events for Safer Internet Day. The main objective for the Hotline was to continue to operate  in Cyprus to receive information from the public relating to illegal content, dealing rapidly with complaints received and drawing up a manual of procedures in cooperation with law enforcement authorities and in accordance with best practice guidelines drawn up by the network. The Helpline operated with main aim to help children raise concerns about illegal and harmful content, harmful conduct (grooming and cyberbullying) and distressing experiences related to their use of online technologies.
