Safer Internet Day is organised by Insafe each year in February to promote safer and more responsible use of online technology and mobile phones, especially amongst children and young people across the world.
The topic for 2011 is “our virtual lives” around the slogan ” It’s more than a game, it’s your life“.
The topic ‘virtual lives’ encompasses online gaming – from simple games to MMOGs (Massively Multiplayer Online Game) – and social networking, i.e. the two online activities most popular with Europe’s youth. As such, it will draw attention to all of them, and its key messages will encapsulate opportunities and protection against risks.
