A Safe Internet in a Safe World Today, Tomorrow and Beyond

INSAFE & CNTI will host a joint conference in Cyprus, ‘Promoting Internet Safety Globally: Connecting Generations.’ The three-day event will take place from 14-16 May 2012 at the Golden Bay Beach Hotel in Larnaca, Cyprus, with an emphasis on INSAFE improving its ties with countries from outside Europe and assisting them in strengthening their awareness-raising initiatives and creating country appropriate resources, tools and procedures to help citizens and their families online across continents, cultures, and generations. “With almost 200 people attending the conference from over 40 different countries, this promises to be a watershed event. Our aim is to place internet safety high on the social agenda of all countries, because the capacity of young people to take advantage of the opportunities that the Internet offers and safely navigate the risks, will impact all areas of their life and hence also on the future of society,” said Janice Richardson, INSAFE Coordinator, of the conference which is co-funded by the European Commission as part of the Safer Internet Programme. “In a rapidly changing world with technological advancements impacting all aspects of our lives, protecting our children within the infinite worlds of cyberspace becomes a top, but at the same time increasingly complex priority. Bringing experts from 43 countries, representing diverse types of stakeholders, at a time when Cyprus is taking over the presidency of the Council of European Union, the conference offers a unique opportunity to shape the future of cyberspace safety for future generations” said Dr. Yiannis Laouris, Safer Internet Center (Cyberethics) director.
