NetSafe invites students to create a campaign for Web Rangers

9/4/2014

NetSafe and Google NZ have teamed up to launch New Zealand’s first Web Rangers programme, an initiative that offers a practical way to help address cyber-bullying and promote good digital citizenship.

The Web Rangers programme invites teenagers from 14-17 years old to create a campaign that will help their peers think about their online behaviour and keep each other safe online. Around 200 young people will be invited to take part in the project, attending workshops in Wellington, Christchurch and Auckland, where they will receive training from experts in online safety, marketing, and social media.  

Students will then be given six weeks to produce their campaigns, which can take any form including YouTube videos and other social media content, billboards, and in-school events. The creators of the top internet safety campaigns from each city win a trip to Google’s HQ in Sydney (with a guardian) to present their campaign to Google executives.  

We would love it if you could encourage students in your school to sign up and take part. They would need to be able to make their way to and attend a holiday workshop at one of these dates:

  • Wellington Tuesday, April 29
  • Christchurch on Wednesday, April 30
  • Auckland on Thursday, May 1.

To sign up, students can visit www.netsafe.org.nz/webrangers. Registrations close April 14.

New Zealand’s most popular YouTube star, Jamie Curry of Jamie’s World, is also backing the programme and she has made this video in support.

If you have any questions about the workshops, or the programme in general, please feel free to contact NetSafe on 0508 NETSAFE or at  help@netsafe.org.nz.
