Eligible content

Any form of online content can be submitted, including videos, posters, documents and other multi-media content. However, it must meet the following requirements to be eligible:

  • Content suitable for young people between the ages of 9 and 18. 
  • Content created by young people between the ages of 9 and 18 (although teacher input in creating the resource is permitted).
  • Content aimed at triggering ideas on how to create a better online world. 
  • Content in one of the national languages of the country in which it is submitted.

Additional requirements

Youth submitting content to the intitiative must agree to a disclaimer stating that

  • the resource may be freely used by the public;
  • the resource may be translated;
  • the resource may be used to promote the Youth Manifesto;
  • the resource may be used to promote other EC and Insafe campaigns (i.e. Safer Internet Day);
  • the work is an original creation and that copyright restrictions have been complied with in creating the resource (i.e. no copyright audio visual resources have been used in the compilation of the resource). 
Youth should also have their submission supported by a teacher (as we are unable to correspond solely with young people).

How to submit ideas and content

To submit your ideas and content, you will be required to log in to the Youth Manifesto platform (see conditions in Disclaimer here). All entries will be moderated by the organisers before being published to the platform. 

Criteria for the selection of youth and teachers to travel to Brussels

The young people will be selected according to the combined results of the voting and the decision of the European jury (as described above). Each winning youth will be accompanied to Brussels by their teacher (parental permission must be granted for all youth under the age of 18).

Travel and subsistence costs for the six selected young people and their accompanying teacher will be fully covered by the Insafe network. Costs include travel to Brussels from the country of residence, local transport, accommodation and meals.

Dates of the trip are likely to be 4-8 November 2014 (depending on travel arrangements from/to country of origin). During the trip, youth and their accompanying teachers will be expected to participate in various events including the Pan-EU Youth and Adult Panels, a high-level meeting with European decision makers, and the Safer Internet Forum (SIF) 2014.
