The “Stories from the internet” are the result of an unusual partnership of different agencies of the Confederation and the cantons. By means of the cartoons we want to give as many people in Switzerland as possible an opportunity to reflect on their own experience of the internet, to discuss this and to extend their knowledge further. Our common goal is to strengthen the population’s security and confidence in using information and communication technologies (ICT).
