Today, on December 5th, 2017, the International Forum of Solidarity – EMMAUS (IFS-EMMAUS) presents the quiz “Budi Cyber-detektiv!” (Be the Cyber-Detective!), an interactive educational application in the form of a quiz that aims to educate children how to recognize and stop the violence, and to introduce them to a relatively new type of the violence in the digital environment, which is expanding in proportion to the expansion of information and communication technologies. The application was created within the project “Child Friendly Guidelines for the Prevention of Violence against Children in Bosnia and Herzegovina”, which is implemented by the IFS-EMMAUS, and supported by UNICEF and the Delegation of the European Union, as a form of guidelines for the prevention of violence against children adapted to children aged 12 + years.
Quiz via Facebook social network can be accessed by children aged 13 to 17,9 years, on “Sigurno dijete” Facebook page. For the younger population, a quiz of the same content is located on the web platform and the Internet Hotline for reporting inappropriate content on the Internet, www.sigurnodijete.ba.
All children who finish the quiz with the result and the title Super Cyber Detective have the opportunity to win weekly awards. The quiz will be active for the next six weeks, and every week, children will have the right to re-join the quiz, with the aim to enlighten the problem of violence against children. If from the first attempt, participants of the quiz do not get the result/title ‘Super Cyber Detective’, the next week they will have the opportunity to improve their score. Each entry gives participants the opportunity to win super prizes.
