About BIK Youth participation activities
Youth participation activities are at the heart of the new BIK Youth programme.
Using co-creation methods, young people will work with other stakeholders to develop online safety guidance, learning and campaigning materials, and contribute to decision-making processes to help create a better internet.
Over time, we'll build and publish a collection of youth participation activities on the BIK Youth site allowing you to both see the outputs of the youth panellists' work, and adapt the methodologies followed for use in your own youth participation settings.
Please check back often for the latest scenarios.
Developing youth participation activities
- Young people want support and education about the internet – for everyone.
- They want to be able to protect their data and privacy online. They want terms and conditions that are simple to understand.
- They want access to good quality and reliable content online.
- They want an online world free from bullying, racism and intolerance, while being able to express themselves freely online.
- They want young people to be able to participate in the internet and have an equal say in how it is shaped and what services it provides.
Youth panellists from across the Insafe network of Safer Internet Centres (SICs) in Europe got together to prepare a "deep dive" session during the recent Safer Internet Forum (SIF), held in Brussels, Belgium on Tuesday, 20 November 2018. Their aim was to identify a contemporary online issue for young people and work together in finding a solution that reflects the youth point of view. The resulting idea was to utilise methods of critical thinking to let adults take a glimpse at the online world through the eyes of young people.
