The Youth Panel (YEP) and Safer internet Forum were a huge success. We would like to thank our great youth panel this year; And what a better way than with our favourite pictures of the event?
Our youth Ambassador Mathew and Noelia provide us a summary of the first day of YEP: “The Youth Panel met over lunch in the historic Metropole Hotel after travelling from their respective 21 countries with parents or teachers. I came to be involved with the youth panel as a Youth Moderator, alongside my fellow ambassador Noelia from Spain.” Read more…

The sixth edition of the Pan-EU Youth and Adult Panel will take place in Brussels on 4-5 November 2014. Youth from different countries of Europe will come together to share their ideas on better internet issues, while accompanying adults will discuss similar issues in parallel sessions. The winners of the Youth Manifesto Resource Exchange initiative will also be participating.
Safer Internet Forum will take place on 6-7 November 2014. Pan-EU Youth will be
represented to tell the European Commission, policymakers, NGOS, experts and other their views on online safety. Our youth ambassador Noelia will be present. Read what she has to say:
“I have written various articles on different occasions in order to give a fresh, young input on the theme Insafe focuses around: internet safety. I have written about what internet safety means to me, I have voted in campaigns and I have tweeted about ideas. However, I have never really given my opinion on a topic which really concerns me: cyberbullying”. Read more…
