This week, we celebrate Safer Internet Day. Safer Internet Day gained official recognition in the U.S. in late 2012, with a joint agreement between the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the European Commission to work together to build a better Internet for youth.
Our plan is to make each Safer Internet Day U.S. (SID U.S.) a highly collaborative project that promotes the efforts of Internet users of all ages, interests and backgrounds to make the Internet a better place and the world a better place with the help of the Internet. This year we are featuring the good deeds and leadership of young people in “playing your part for a better Internet,” the EC’s theme for SID 2016.
Please join us in celebrating Safer Internet Day and each user’s efforts, big and small, to make the Internet a better place and the world a better place using the Internet and connected media!
This year, a special live event will take place at Universal Studios Hollywood with 350+ youth leaders, educators, policy makers, parents, Internet safety experts and executives from the leading tech companies to focus not just on problems but solutions for a better Internet. You can watch the livestream here!
