The purpose of World Telecommunication and Information Society Day (WTISD) is to help raise awareness of the possibilities that the use of the internet and other information and communication technologies (ICT) can bring to societies and economies, as well as of ways to bridge the digital divide.

See the ITU website for further information.

Here on the Better Internet for Kids (BIK) portal, we’ll be taking a look at some of these issues in support of the day. Come back nearer the time to read more.
