Kosovo celebrates Safer Internet Day

Safer Internet Day 2016 was celebrated across the globe on Tuesday, 9 February. In our round up of events and activities which took place to mark the day, we hear from the Kosovo SID Committee who coordinate the campaign in the country:

"Kosovo marked Safer Internet Day 2016 with various activities. A half-day conference was organised by the Kosovo Safer Internet Day Committee where representatives of relevant institutions presented their work in the field of internet safety. Additionally, government representatives and other important actors gathered together to discuss issues on the topic. Children of two primary schools were also present at the conference where they had the chance to ask questions as well as learn more on what needs to be done to stay safe online.
 
"After the conference, in ‘Nëna Terezë' square in the centre of Prishtina (the capital city of Kosovo), Center FIT held an awareness-raising campaign where they had the chance to share their educational materials with the citizens of Prishtina. Moreover, the staff of Center FIT acted as ‘Dr Technology' where they stopped children to ask questions such as: Do you own a smartphone?, How much time do you spend on your smartphone?, How many friends do you have on your social network site?, and so on. After asking them questions, FIT offered tips on how to stay safe online.
 
"Throughout the day, children in 14 primary schools worked on creating posters and other activities relating to internet safety. Their work was posted online with the hashtag #SID2016.
"Also for Safer Internet Day 2016, Center FIT launched its TV animation which addresses some of the most common risks in the internet such as cyber bullying. The TV animation was launched on various local TV channels."
