The Council of Europe designed the online game "Through the Wild Web Woods" to help children learn basic Internet safety rules. The game uses familiar fairy tales to guide children through a maze of potential dangers on the way to the fabulous e-city Komet, while teaching them to protect identity and personal data, participate safely in chat rooms, recognise sites and online games containing harmful content, develop a critical approach towards information found on the Internet, and protect their computers against spam and viruses. The game also promotes such key concepts and values underlying the work of the Council of Europe as democracy, respect for others and children’s rights. The game, mainly for children between 7 and 10, exists already in more than 20 languages.
