Ensuring that children have access to high-quality positive online experiences from an early age can assist and empower them to become active and participatory citizens. The Positive Online Content Campaign (POCC) is being organised to place a spotlight on the issue, with the ultimate aim of promoting better online experiences for young children, and encouraging the creation of new tools and services, by providing positive examples of digital content for parents, teachers and, in particular, content providers and producers.
To get a better understanding of positive content and our upcoming activities, we invite you to visit the POCC minisite, part of the Better Internet for Kids (BIK) portal: www.betterinternetforkids.eu/positive-content and to take a look at the revised positive online content criteria checklist.
We encourage content providers to use this when developing new content and services to ensure that their products are fit for purpose, and take measures to ensure that children can go online free from risk of harm, whether this be in terms of content, contact, conduct, or commercial considerations. Parents, carers and educators can also benefit from the tool by being better aware of the features they should look out for when choosing online experiences for younger children.
Spanning over a whole week, the Awareness Week will address the needs of each involved stakeholder group. Therefore, the Awareness week will be structured in the following way, providing engaging initiatives and activities each day:
25.09: kids and young people
Tuesday 26.09: teachers and educators
Wednesday 27.09: parents and carers
Thursday 28.09: content providers and producers, industry
Friday 29.09: national focus
