Important notice: Important notice:
The Youth Manifesto website is no longer being maintained or updated, even though initiatives inspired by the Youth Manifesto outcome and its principles are still being developed. Following the launch of the Better Internet for Kids (BIK) portal which aims to provide a central hub of information and resources on internet safety including a dedicated youth corner, the content of the Youth Manifesto website has been gradually migrated there. You can still download the Youth Manifesto publication here.
Regularly-updated content on youth activities from across the Insafe network of European Safer Internet Centres is now made available here. You can also subscribe to our quarterly Better Internet for Kids (BIK) bulletin to keep informed of better internet issues. Each edition provides a topical focus article looking at the latest online trends, with features from youth, industry and the research community, along with a mix of news and resources from other key stakeholders.

Have your say on the future of the internet and win a trip to Brussels!


Participate in the Youth Manifesto initiative to ensure that your digital rights are safeguarded and you might just win a trip to Brussels.

There are two ways to go about it – Create a resource and Cast your vote. Consider this as a fun project... discuss it with your parents or teachers, or work on it with your friends.

Your project: Use your creativity, and think long and think hard about different issues relating to the online world and how that online world could be made better in the future. Then create a resource that reflects your thoughts and opinions. It could be anything - a poem, a poster, video or even a blog. If your creation is among the six best received, you’ll be invited to participate in the Safer Internet Form in Brussels in November.

We have already received entries from different EU countries and we encourage you to send in yours by 15 September 2014.

Casting your vote: Do you think there should be more freedom online? Do you think the terms and conditions of popular online services should be simplified for users to understand? Do you want better online reporting systems?

These are among the 30 best ideas collected over a period of two months from youth from 31 European countries on what a better internet might look like. Those ideas have now been collated here for you to vote on. The ten most voted ideas will form the Youth Manifesto that will be presented to European policy makers during the Safer Internet Forum later this year.

This is your chance to ensure that your voice is heard and your opinion is taken into account!
