Global Voices is an international, multilingual community of writers, translators and human rights activists. Together, it leverages the power of the Internet to tell stories that build understanding across borders. How is this done? Report: Its multilingual newsroom team reports on people whose voices and experiences rarely appear in mainstream media. Translate: Its Lingua volunteers make stories available in dozens of languages to ensure that language is not a barrier to understanding. Defend: The Advox team advocates for free speech online, paying special attention to legal, technical and physical threats to people using the Internet to speak out in the public interest. Empower: Rising Voices provides training and mentorship to local underrepresented communities who want to tell their own stories using participatory media tools.
The manual serves as key educational material for strengthening the capacities of civil society organisations, media and the wider circle of citizens to face media manipulation.
The Safe on the Internet website and CRISP (Children's Rights on the Internet - Safe and Protected)! were created to contribute to greater safety and protection of children's rights and privacy on the Internet. The site is part of the project Protection and safety of children and their rights on the Internet (or CRISP for short), which was implemented by the Metamorphosis Foundation using financial support from the European Union. This website contains a wealth of useful information for children and teenagers, their parents and teachers. It includes tips and guidelines for the safe enjoyment of the Internet, general information about the Internet as a medium, the opportunities it offers, the dangers it brings and ways to protect yourself from them. The contents of this website are adapted to users of different levels (from those who have minimal knowledge of the Internet to those who are regular users) as well as to different age categories (primary school children, teenagers and adults).
