Phase 2: I’m Happy Because I’m Safe

HappySafe_MousePad_PRINTBackground

Online safety has been identified as a priority to raise public awareness for Inuit children and youth. Below are some selected results from an informal survey conducted by grade 7-12 students in Kugaaruk, Nunavut in October 2012. Of the 62 participants,

  • 60% of females and 37% of males spend more than two hours a day on Facebook
  • 40% of females and 53% of males agreed with the statement, “I wish my parents had more rules at home”
  • 83% of females and 81% of males want to travel outside of Nunavut
  • 83% of females and 67% of males report being bullied outside of school
  • 71% of all students aged 16 and over have been peer pressured into doing something they didn’t want to do.[1]

Through the support and guidance of an advisory committee, the I’m Happy Because I’m Safe – Phase 2 project focused on creating factsheets and public service announcements (videos on YouTube, and audio for radio) to help Inuit better understand how to be safe online.

This project is designed for four audiences including kids ages four to nine, pre-teens ages 10-12, teens ages 13-18, as well as parents and guardians.

It is a first step into raising online safety awareness with the hopes to expand in the future. Please download the four factsheets in the publication section below that are available in English and four dialects of Inuktitut. Watch the video PSAs on our Pauktuutit YouTube channel.
