The Positive Online Content Campaign (POCC) aims at providing better online experiences for children through high-quality digital content. This campaign gives the opportunity to raise awareness about the importance of ensuring that young children of up to 12 years have access to the best possible online content available.
Positive online content can provide young kids and teenagers with a better online experience resulting, in the long run, in a better informed, more engaged, digitally literate generation of citizens. The POCC campaign started early September with the launch of a website dedicated to displaying a number of examples of positive online content filtered for the needs of each stakeholder: children and young people, parents and caretakers, teachers and educators, and content providers and producers. The website also showcases a comprehensive checklist of criteria explaining what to look for when designing digital content or when choosing online content for children.
The Positive Online Content Campaign (POCC) is organised by members of the Insafe network of Safer Internet Centres in Europe and the former POSCON (Positive Online Content and Services for Children in Europe) thematic network to put positive content and the importance of better online experiences for young children in the spotlight.
