37.5 % of European citizens live in border areas. With the Missing People Euroregion Meuse-Rhine project, which ran from September 2014 until December 2020, AMBER Alert Europe aimed to connect EU citizens across borders in the search for missing people.
The project was launched by AMBER Alert Europe in close cooperation with the Euroregion Meuse-Rhine and the Province of Limburg (Netherlands). The project was established to develop border protocols to ensure that when someone goes missing in a Euroregion, police, media and citizens in this area are immediately informed and on the lookout. The principal goal of the project was to bring endangered missing persons home safely by quickly sharing a missing person’s appeal with the press and public in the entire Euroregion, even across national borders.
We gave a workshop to children aged 11 - 12 in which they received tools to protect themselves against going missing or an abduction and online dangers such as online grooming.
We support and facilitate the sharing of know-how and expertise.
Taking and sharing naked pictures of yourself can have serious consequences. We have created a campaign to make teenagers aware of the risks involved in sexting.
