ConnectSafely to host Safer Internet Day in US

Safer Internet Day 2014

Safer Internet Day, which has been celebrated throughout the world for the last 10 years, is about to get a big boost in the United States.

The project, which is organized by Brussels-based Insafe and the European Commission, includes annual awareness events on or before the second Tuesday of February – for the coming year, February 11. It’s a well-established campaign in Europe and other regions and gained official recognition in the US in late 2012, when the Department of Homeland Security signed a joint agreement with the European Commission to work together in building a better Internet for youth. This year ConnectSafely, with the support of DHS and a key member of Congress, was designated by Insafe as the US host going forward.

Our plan is to make the US celebration of Safer Internet Day a highly collaborative project, with supporters from the Internet industry and partners representing a broad array of youth-serving organizations.

Safer Internet Day 2014 will be celebrated on 11 February 2014. The tagline for the campaign is “Let’s create a better internet together”
