The Icelandic awareness node is Heimili og skoli (Home and School), the National Parents´Association in Iceland. Heimili og skoli was a partner of SIAP from Oct. 1st. 2004 and took part in both SUSI and SAFT projects on behalf of Iceland.

Our awareness work is partly built on the experience and resources from those projects. We will continue using the SAFT brand for the SIAPI project and have a new slogan: SAFT – SAmfélag, Fjölskylda og Tækni (Society, Family and Technology).

Our mission statement:
Empower children and parents to enjoy the internet and new media in a safe and positive way. Our emphasis is awareness work on net-ethics, computer game rating, scource criticism, uses of mobile phones and personal protection on the internet.
