Today the Insafe network, European network of Safer Internet Centres, is celebrating Safer Internet Day for the eighth consecutive year. This is the occasion of the year to join our efforts in making the internet a better place for our children and young people. Since the first edition of SID in 2004, interest has grown tremendously world wide to reach all five continents and almost 70 countries, from Canada to South Korea and Russia to Kenya, including all 27 countries of the European Union.

"Safer Internet Day is the annual highlight for the wide range of people and organisations who work hard to make the internet safer. Today, Safer Internet Centres, educators, parents, industry policy makers and children themselves all have the opportunity to review their achievements and identify challenges ahead" said Neelie Kroes, patron of Safer Internet Day, and European Digital Agenda Commissioner. "For children and young people especially, it is both a celebration of the wonderful opportunities the online world offers, and a reminder that they need to be responsible citizens in the digital world. I am proud to support Safer Internet Day".

Safer Internet Day 2011 celebrates the theme “digital lives” with the slogan "It’s more than a game, it’s your life", encouraging people to think about their online identity and the survival of their real self through the online experience. And because Insafe strongly believes in the power of the voice of youth and makes a point of relaying their ideas and opinions, today we have published videos made by our national Youth Panels. Take a look for yourself to see how young people really feel about these issues.
