Awareness raising on children’s privacy protection

About project

The purpose of the Project "Awareness raising on children privacy protection" - to provide the children (aged 13 to 18), their parents, teachers and service providers with more knowledge and skills about the protection of children's online privacy.

The implementation of the project started from the research: analysis of good practices in Lithuania and Italy relevant to the child privacy protection. This part of the survey included such issues as legal environment, self-regulation, court decisions, academic surveys and educational initiatives.

We have surveyed schoolchildren, their parents, teachers and service providers. We are happy that the children's participation was especially high: 1800 schoolchildren from all over Lithuania. The results can be found on the project website!

Information campaign was conducted during the Project implementation:
For children (aged 13 to 18):

  • The video script competition "Children Online Privacy Protection" (the scripts were assessed and winnners awarded);
  • A series of 5 educational videos about the children online privacy (it will be really interesting);
  • Roundtable discussions at schools (would you like to take part? To share your experience? Or maybe you would like the discussion to take place at your school? - by all means write to us and offer your ideas).
  • For adults (teachers, parents, service providers):
  • A special publication was created "Children's Privacy Protection" (it will offer a lot of interesting and relevant information);
  • Radio shows were broadcast. 

Attention: Especially for the teachers:

  • Video conferences will be organised on the issues of the children's privacy protection (interested? - we are waiting for you)
