The Wild Web Woods game is aimed at children between 7 and 10 and it has been developed to help children learn the rules of internet safety in a fun format. The game is hosted on the Council of Europe website in 14 language versions. Finland has supported the development of the game financially.

The Council of Europe is working with both children and adults to make the internet safe for every age. The 47-nation organisation is at the forefront of efforts to combat internet crime.

The game has been developed in the spirit of the Council’s “Building a Europe for and with children” programme, set up to promote children’s rights and protect them from all forms of violence - including online dangers.
