What can be done?

Stopping use of the internet and social media has become unthinkable, which is why we need to be able to access the internet in a safe and responsible way. To be able to do this we need to promote Media and Information Literacy (MIL) skills as a critically important part of education. With better MIL skills, young people will be able to take advantage of online platforms and use them in a safe and responsible way.
