Save the date for this year's Safer Internet Forum (SIF) which will take place in a hybrid format on Thursday, 27 October 2022 with a theme of A Digital Decade for children and youth: BIK+ to protect, empower and respect!

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

Following the recent launch of the new BIK+ strategy, this year’s edition will provide 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 will be organised in a youth-led manner, with young people playing an active role in the planning, preparation and delivery of the Forum.

While we are only able to accommodate a smaller invited audience in person in Brussels on this occasion, we welcome wide attendance online from all with an interest in creating a safer and better internet for children and young people. Public registration will open in early September.

Stay tuned for information on the 2022 edition of Safer Internet Forum.
