Safer Internet Forum (SIF) 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 and making the internet a better place.
During this year's edition, Commissioner Mariya Gabriel (European Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society) will present the winners of the #SaferInternet4EU Awards, designed to recognise and reward young people, teachers and organisations who have demonstrated best practice in creating a safer and better digital world. The Awards form one aspect of the wider #SaferInternet4EU initiative which has been running throughout 2018 with the aim of promoting online safety, media literacy and cyber hygiene to help children, young people, parents, teachers, and other EU citizens to become empowered and responsible digital users.
The SIF agenda will continue with a focus on the impact which technology is having on children, young people and society. Taking an innovative and interactive approach, SIF participants will hear from a number of exciting keynote speakers and will be invited to "deep dive" into a number of topical issues - such as sexting, data privacy and deep fakes - to further explore the challenges and possible solutions.
Keep checking back for the latest information. Online registration will open in September 2018.
