Digitisation and competent media use

We want to promote digitisation in Switzer­land and enable the digital penetration of everyday life. Everyone in Switzer­land must be able at all times to communicate in both the public and private spheres and to exploit the op­por­tu­ni­ties provided by digitisation. To make this possible, we see it as our duty to train users in the competent and safe use of digital media. First and foremost, we support children and young people in dealing with new op­por­tu­ni­ties. But we are also keen for the working population and senior citizens to recognise the op­por­tu­ni­ties that the in­for­ma­tion society holds for them.

With the help of our mea­sures, we repeatedly draw the attention of the target groups in their various roles (young people, parents, working people, teachers and grandparents) to the op­por­tu­ni­ties and risks of digitisation. We are confident that this will promote an in­for­ma­tion society that is value-adding and safe.
