Background to Safer Internet Forum 2022

SIF is a key annual event where policymakers, 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 and making the internet a better place.

Following the recent launch of the new Better Internet for Kids (BIK+) strategy, the 2022 edition provided an opportunity to discuss the strategy in detail, identifying its key objectives and priority actions. Significantly, given the strategy's key focus on youth participation and empowerment and to mark also the European Year of Youth, the event was organised in a youth-led manner, with young people playing an active role in the planning, preparation and delivery of the Forum.
