Ministerial Conference Safer Internet for Children

Today the Prague Congress Centre hosts a ministerial conference Safer Internet for Children, which is organised by the Ministry of the Interior in cooperation with the European Commission.

The conference, which will be attended by EU Ministers and other guests, will discuss primarily the issue of police cooperation, which could reduce the volume of illegal Internet content and help detect creators and distributors of child pornography.

The ministerial conference will be concluded by the adoption of the “Prague Declaration”.

New multiannual programme of the EU for online safety of children – the “Safer Internet” programme - entered into force on the first day of the Czech EU Presidency. In 2009 – 2013 this programme will focus on increasing online safety, especially for children who enter the world of Internet and mobile technologies at an early age, and who are rapidly becoming teenagers with perfect technological skills, and surf the Internet.
