Stakeholder group: NGOs and associations

The Internet Keep Safe Coalition (iKeepSafe) is a nonprofit international alliance of more than 100 policy leaders, educators, law enforcement members, technology experts, public health experts and advocates. It provides various resources aimed to assist parents, educators and policy makers in teaching children and youth how to use the Internet and other information and communication technologies in a safe and secure manner.

iKeepSafe has created and launched several products, tools and programmes aimed to track global trends and issues surrounding digitally connected products and their affect on children, and to provide assistance in capacity development and educational initiatives aimed at teaching children how to safely and ethically use the Internet and digital devices. Some examples in this regard include: educational books on the topics of online safety, cyberbullying, and responsible downloading; interactive workshops helping students, teachers, and parents learn how to steer clear of cyber tricks and be responsible digital citizens; tools designed to assist educators in integrating the concepts of cybersafety, security and ethics into existing technology literacy standards and curricula; an application addressed to parents and designed to offer them expert online-safety advice and resources adapted to their individual situation. The coalition also assists countries in implementing digital citizenship and safety strategies by informing their departments of public health, ministries of communication and law enforcement agencies in these initiatives.
