Collaborating for #CyberPeace

About

Promoting Digital Citizenship & Online Safety

In this globalized 21st century world, the young minds must be equipped to use the potential of new technologies for their growth and success. It is therefore the urgent need of the hour to reach out to this most responsive demographic, by engaging them in meaningful dialogue and activities which promote Digital Citizenship & Safe Online Practices.

To address this critical need, Cyber Peace Foundation has launched e-Raksha Contest in collaboration with NCERT, which calls for collective action in spreading awareness and building trust among actors of the cyberspace. The contest encourages participation across multiple levels in the education eco-system – school students and in-service teachers across government & private schools and student-teachers from RIEs, DIETs, Colleges of Education and Departments of Education in the Universities.

About eRaksha Awards

The world has advanced exponentially over the last decade,
and witnessed the emergence of pioneering digital innovations, presenting us with opportunities to learn, share and connect. With newer vistas of learning and growth coming up, users are exposed to various threats as well, especially younger users, who may be unaware of the dangers lurking in cyberspace. It therefore becomes important to reach out to Internet users, to engage them in meaningful dialogues and activities to inculcate the concept of Digital Citizenship & Safe Online Practices.

To help deal with this critical need on the ground,
the Cyber Peace Foundation in collaboration with NCERT, CBSE and UGC is proud to present e-Raksha Competition 2020, to help keep young users safe, and also enable educators, caregivers to provide guidance to young minds, and help them maximise opportunities and minimise the risks in online spaces.

The contest has received an overwhelming response from schools. Over 14000+ entries have been received from all parts of the country.
