    Internet Safety

    Last updated: 6 May 2009

    The Internet Safety Project was launched on September 1st 2007 in Sharm El-Sheikh at the International Youth Forum.

    It has made significant progress towards its overall objectives, namely to empower the youth of all nations to become catalysts for change through ICT.

    The Internet Safety Project aims to promote the "Peace Culture" defined by the United Nations as “a set of values, attitudes, modes of behavior and ways of life that reject violence and prevent conflicts by tackling their root causes to solve problems through dialogue and negotiation among individuals, groups and nations".
    This aim could be achieved by improving communications across cultural and geographical barriers through content development, platform creativity, by exploring the socio political impact of IT enabled industries, exploring in depth ICT as a channel for economic opportunities and innovation for youth, and by engaging youth in securing the Internet as the medium through which these objectives will be achieved.

    The project rests on capitalizing on the creative spirit of youth to innovate constantly-changing Internet based content and IT platforms that should match the pace of socio-political changes and developments in real life.
