Insafe booth in full swing at IGF 2018
- BIK Team
The 13th Internet Governance Forum (IGF) took place from 12-14 November 2018 in Paris, France. This year the conference ran under the overall theme of "The Internet of Trust".
As in previous years, the joint Insafe-INHOPE network hosted a customary booth in the IGF village in order to raise awareness about the Better Internet for Kids (BIK) 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 2019, SID will take place on Tuesday, 5 February with this year's theme calling on people joining "Together for a better internet". Hence, during the three days, IGF participants from all over the world had the opportunity to join the campaign and get their Polaroid picture taken.
