New Agreement Signed to Promote Safe & Effective Use of Internet Among Children in UAE

Print page

ICDL Arabia has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the organising committee of the ‘Child Safety Campaign’ at the Supreme Council for Family Affairs Initiative in Sharjah, in the United Arab Emirates. The agreement will see awareness raised among local parents and children on the safe, effective and responsible use of the internet.

According to the agreement, a series of cyber-safety awareness workshops will be conducted by ICDL Arabia, in collaboration with the Child Safety Campaign’s partners. The workshops will target children in the 7-12 and 13-18 age groups, as well as parents, teachers and employees. Each session will focus on the proper and improper forms and practices of internet usage, and will track the signs of harassment and threats, while also detailing how potential victims can react to and report such instances. According to the organisers, the educational workshops aim to create a generation that is better informed of the dangers online, while also being able to live, work and play safely.
