The Council of Europe and the Moroccan Centre for Polytechnic Research and Innovation (CMRPI) organised a series of activities highlighting the advantages and challenges of using the internet and social networks in Morocco, especially in regards to children. These meetings were held in Rabat and Kénitra with the support of EU-funded South Programme III.

As suggested by many participants, an app to protect children from unsafe use of the internet will be developed as a concrete follow-up of these initiatives.

The South Programme III (2018-2020) aims to ensure the sustainability of earlier results by contributing to reinforcing human rights, the rule of law and democracy in the Southern Mediterranean region in accordance with European and other international standards based on a demand-driven approach. The programme holds as its main focus the combating of all forms of violence against women. The programme has a budget of €3 334 000 funded 90% by the European Union and 10% by the Council of Europe as the organisation in charge of the implementation.
