SAFER INTERNET FORUM

Safer Internet Forum (SIF) 2017 will take place on Thursday, 23 November 2017 in Brussels, Belgium. It is a key annual international conference in Europe where policy makers, researchers, law enforcement bodies, youth, parents and carers, teachers, NGOs, industry representatives, experts and other relevant actors come together to discuss the latest trends, risks and solutions related to child online safety.

With a theme of "From children's tech to resilient youth – how to foster wellbeing online?", the SIF agenda includes sessions on children and robotic toys, building resilience with vulnerable groups, whether we should verify age online, and the scale of the challenge being faced in tackling child sexual abuse material (CSAM) online. The EC-facilitated, self-regulatory Alliance to better protect minors online will host a session on how the various Alliance commitments are now being actioned, while youth representatives will report on their views in response to the Alliance initiative, also sharing the results of ongoing, youth-led co-creation processes.
