Today, on Safer Internet Day, millions of children, parents, educators and policy makers in over 120 countries across six continents are exploring how to stay safe online. The digital world offers endless opportunities, but it is also a place where young people may be exposed to violent or disturbing content, strong language or hate speech or become victims of cyber-bullying, or sexual harassment.
The motto of Safer Internet Day 2017 is "Be the change: unite for a better internet". In this spirit, the European Commission, tech and telecoms companies, broadcasters, NGOs and UNICEF (forming the Alliance to Better Protect Minors Online) today unveiled a major self-regulatory initiative to address harmful content, harmful conduct and harmful contact online. This has been brokered by the European Commission in line with its Better Internet for Kids strategy.
Rovio is proud to be a part of Alliance to Better Protect Minors Online and continue the work for a safer thus better internet!
