supported by the Federal Government Commissioner of the German Federal Government for Culture and Media and by the German Federal Ministry for Family, Seniors, Women and Children in 2012 and 2013; and by the Federal Government Commissioner of the German Federal Government for Culture and Media in 2015 to 2018

“Ein Netz für Kinder” is a mutual initiative of politics, business and youth media protection institutions that are convinced that a plethora of high-quality, age-appropriate and interesting websites for children is the best way to ensure youth media protection.

The aim of the initiative is to create an attractive, safe surfing space for children from 8 to 12, where kids don’t just find some good options, but a large surfing landscape where they can grasp the structure of the internet and learn to surf. What is there for them online? How do they find websites that interest them? What should they do to find important websites quickly?

This social initiative supported by politics and business intends to strengthen children’s, parents’ and schools’ trust in the internet as a medium.

From 2012 to 2013 tierchenwelt.de (the German edition of animalfunfacts.net) was supported by the “Ein Netz für Kinder" initiative. Within this support, interactive content such as coloring pages, animal quizzes and personality tests were created for tierchenwelt.de.

Our special thanks go out to Culture Minister Bernd Neumann, Ms Christel Franz, initiator Hans-Ernst Hanten and the “Ein Netz für Kinder” office.
