Young Australians asked for their opinion to improve online safety
A national crowdsourcing campaign inviting young people to share their opinions and ideas about cyberbullying and the law has been launched to help improve online safety.
The Digital Jigsaw campaign will be promoted through social media networks including YouTube, Twitter and Facebook over a period of three weeks.
Seven short videos and accompanying digital postcards have been created to highlight specific aspects of the campaign and invite young people to have their say by completing an online survey.
The purpose of the campaign is to better understand the complex interrelationship between cyberbullying, young people and the law. The feedback will help the Commonwealth Government in its implementation of the Policy to Enhance Online Safety for Children.
The project is led by the Social Policy Research Centre at the University of New South Wales, in collaboration with the Young and Well Cooperative Research Centre, the University of Western Sydney and the University of South Australia.
The Federal Government has funded this consortium to better understand and help safely manage cyberbullying in Australia. Project Rockit, an interactive anti-bullying and youth leadership program, has helped to create and communicate the campaign.
Young people aged between 15 and 24 currently living in Australia are invited to participate in the online survey.
This is an opportunity for young people to voice their opinions and ideas to the Federal Government – and help solve the puzzle of cyberbullying, young people and the law.
