The initiative

The EU initiative klicksafe aims to promote people's online skills and to support them in their competent and critical use of the Internet with a wide range of offers. klicksafe bundles and develops relevant information and offers for safe, competent and self-determined Internet use. We are aimed in particular at people who support children and young people in developing their Internet skills - from parents to teachers to multipliers - but also at anyone who wants to get fit themselves. Users get an overview of current online topics and concrete tips for everyday digital life.

Our independent information portal provides users with a wealth of up-to-date information, practical tips and helpful materials on digital services and topics. Our fields of action also include the implementation of comprehensive campaigns and the development of concepts for nationwide qualification measures for teachers and specialists. We also support training courses for children, young people, parents, teachers and professionals on the opportunities and risks of the Internet. In addition, klicksafe networks initiatives and stakeholders in Germany and Europe to promote media literacy on the Internet.

klicksafe is the German Awareness Centre of the European Union, coordinated by the Media Authority of Rhineland-Palatinate and implemented together with the Media Authority of North Rhine-Westphalia. Since 2008, klicksafe has also coordinated the Safer Internet Centre DE, which includes the Internet hotlines of eco, FSM and as well as the helpline Nummer gegen Kummer. klicksafe is funded by the Digital Europe Program (DIGITAL) of the European Union.
