Engaging young people in online safety prevention projects: challenges and good practices from the Make-IT-Safe project in Belgium

Date of webinar: 
30 Jul 2015
Start and finish time of webinar: 
3pm CET
Ariane Couvreur, project manager for ECPAT Belgium
University of Bedfordshire – the International Centre: Researching Child Sexual Exploitation

In this webinar Ariane Couvreur will introduce the Make-IT-Safe project in Belgium. The Make-IT-Safe project is a collaborative project between five ECPAT groups (Germany, the United Kingdom, Austria, the Netherlands and Belgium). It aims to enhance the knowledge of youth on the safe and responsible use of the internet and new online technologies. With this knowledge it is hoped that they will be able to protect themselves and their peers against the potential risks of sexual exploitation and abuse online. The originality of this project is that young people themselves are responsible for prevention, through the peer-to-peer methodology.

In this presentation Ariane will describe the methods used to stimulate youth participation and promote peer-to-peer education. She will also outline the main achievements and main challenges.
