* The Safer Internet Forum (SIF) is a key annual international conference in Europe where policy-makers, researchers, law enforcement bodies, youth, parents and carers, teachers, NGOs, industry representatives, experts and other relevant actors come together to discuss the latest trends, risks and solutions related to child online safety. It is organised and funded by the European Commission under the Safer Internet Programme as part of the European Strategy for a Better Internet for Children.
The Safer Internet Programme supports projects and events to help create a safer online environment for children and young people, as well as to promote industry self-regulation and international co-operation. The activities cover awareness raising, fighting illegal content, filtering and content labelling, involving the civil society in child online safety issues and creating a solid database of information related to the use of new technologies by young people. The Safer Internet Forum is an important focus for debate and for involving young people in discussing how they see the internet and new technologies, and how technology influences their lives, now and in the future.
