As part of its networking activities, klicksafe discusses current trends and topics related to Internet safety. The exchange and pooling of resources also plays an important role.
Our partners contribute individual competencies, experiences and offers to the network. Of central importance in this context is our expert advisory board, which supports the German Safer Internet Centre in an advisory capacity.
On an international level , klicksafe works closely with Safer Internet Centres throughout Europe and is a member of the European network INSAFE (Internet Safety Awareness for Europe).
Nationally, klicksafe cooperates with representatives from a wide range of fields, such as non-profit organizations, institutions for the protection of children and young people, foundations, universities, associations, companies, and ministries at federal and state level. Many of these institutions and organizations are members of the advisory board.
As AwarenessCentre Germany , klicksafe forms the Safer Internet Centre Germany (saferinternet.de) together with the helpline Nummer gegen Kummer e.V. and the hotlines jugendschutz.net, eco and FSM. Since 2008, klicksafe has coordinated the German Safer Internet Centre with the aim of promoting media literacy among users nationwide and enabling them to use the Internet critically and confidently.
The advisory board serves the exchange and networking of public and private institutions from education, media pedagogy, science, youth protection and crime prevention. Major companies from the media and network industry are also part of it. The unifying goal of the advisory board members is to design a better Internet for children and young people and to enable them to use it confidently and safely.
klicksafe works with numerous partners who support the initiative with their experience, information and resources. In these cooperations, for example, materials, joint campaigns and actions are created. The cooperation partners can essentially be assigned to three areas:
- governmental institutions for family and youth, media supervision, crime prevention, culture and education with their representatives from politics
- the communications industry, especially the major providers of Internet services with their self-regulatory bodies and television broadcasters, plus publishers and press representatives
- Clubs, associations and initiatives from many areas of society, mostly non-profit organizations (NGOs), whose work objectives can be linked to the concerns of klicksafe - at the national as well as the regional and local level.
