NewsMay – Digital Gezinsbond

Gezinsbond’s pledge in the context of the Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition, Belgium

The Gezinsbond has set up a programme consisting of tools and trainings directed at parents aimed to develop their skills in understanding and responding to the risks of online activities their children get involved in:

1) Website veiligonline.be (safety online) with accessible information on the topic
2) Training on ‘safety online’
3) Specific training ‘Safety Online’ dedicated to disadvantaged families
4) Training on Cyberbullying
5) Workshop on Gaming
6) Advertising literacy.

These trainings are developed by the Gezinsbond in collaboration with partners (such as Child Focus and Belgian universities), schools and local organisations to reach a broad public. These trainings, available since 2008, are now being updated to include more flexible and interactive modules.
