Initial Youth Internet Safety Focus Group Training Session on 4th & 5th February 2008

The initial Youth Internet Safety Focus Group training session took place on 4th & 5th February. The Focus Group is an integral part of the wider Cyber Peace Initiative. The Group is formed for the purpose of increasing awareness about Internet safety and the huge potential of ICT. The group aims at offering young people the chance to identify by themselves harmful content and decide on the best way to deal with that through a participatory approach. The focus group would serve the community and would have to rely on strong relations with the community; therefore, networking and survey research would have to be initial objectives of the focus group. The group is made up of 11 young people.
