“Stay Safe” is a 10 days Youth Exchange project which will be held in Kaunas, Lithuania and will gather participants from 6 countries – Lithuania, Latvia, Croatia, Poland, Bulgaria and Italy to change attitudes about internet safety and

Project summary

Internet safety or online safety or cyber safety or e-safety is trying to be safe on the internet and is the knowledge of maximizing the user’s safety and security risks to private information and property associated with using the internet, and the self-protection from computer crime.
However, very often internet safety and data privacy and security are not considered of high importance, especially between youngsters and they only rarely take additional actions or use privacy tools to ensure their safety on the internet. While our youngsters found this topic of crucial importance during the times of various fraudulent activities online, identity thefts, stalking and others.

Project‘s objectives:

  • to analyze the reasons for irresponsible online behaviour and look for solutions with 36 young participants (+6 leaders);
  • to learn about the benefits of using privacy tools for 36 young participants (+6 leaders) and local communities;
  • to change attitude and behaviour with private personal data, using improved digital skills for 36 young participants (+6 leaders) and local communities.
