Safer Internet Day is a yearly event that takes place around the world and aims to educate children and others about the dangers of Internet use and how to stay safe online.

It is organised by Insafe, the European internet safety network. In 2007, 43 countries from all over the world participated in Safer Internet Day:

The fifth annual edition of Safer Internet Day has surpassed all records, with 55 countries taking part across the world from New Zealand to Costa Rica and Taiwan to Greenland. The unprecedented take-up reflects a growing concern from all sectors including government, the civil sector, the public and media on the importance of educating young people to use online technologies safely, effectively and ethically.

This year’s theme “Life online is what you make of it” has not only inspired efforts to make the event more memorable than ever, it has resulted in exemplary teamwork across borders hence underlining the global nature of the virtual world.
