The original 'Strategy for a Better Internet for Children', published in 2012, proposed a series of actions to be undertaken by the Commission, Member States and by the whole industry value chain. The new strategy for a better internet for kids (BIK+), adopted on 11 May 2022, will ensure that children are protected, respected and empowered online in the new Digital Decade, in line with the European Digital Principles. A child-friendly version of the BIK+ strategy has also been produced. This new strategy builds on the first European Strategy for a Better Internet for Children (BIK). As much has changed technologically and in EU legislation since 2012, a compendium of relevant legislation is available. BIK+ is the digital arm of the comprehensive EU Strategy on the Rights of the Child (RoC) from 2021. Find out more on the European Commission's website.
