Create, connect and share respect: Insafe-INHOPE network booth activities at IGF village

The 12th Internet Governance Forum (IGF) is taking place from 18-21 December 2017 in Geneva, Switzerland. This year the conference runs under the overall theme "Shape your digital future".

As in previous years, the joint Insafe-INHOPE network is hosting a customary booth in the IGF village in order to raise awareness about the Better Internet for Kids agenda in Europe, including the annual Safer Internet Day (SID) campaign. Safer Internet Day is a global campaign that takes place every year in February. In 2018, SID will take place on Tuesday, 6 February with this year's theme calling on people to "Create, connect and share respect: a better internet starts with you". Hence, during the week, IGF participants from all over the world will have an opportunity to join the campaign and get their polaroid picture taken. 

For more information on SID, visit and follow the conversations on Twitter using #SaferInternetDay and #SID2018.
