EC backs 'Safer Internet Day'

Brief: A group of international companies and government organisations have labelled Tuesday 'Safer Internet Day' for school children

The European Commission is supporting a child safety Web surfing campaign that has dubbed Tuesday "Safer Internet Day".

Insafe, an EC-backed group made up of 65 international organisations, is promoting the day in a bid to make children more aware of the dangers that can be encountered online.

As part of the day, Viviane Reding, a Member of the European Commission responsible for Information Society, is heading events for children in the UK.

Children in 19 countries have been invited to participate in a school storytelling competition, and campaign organisers are also hosting conferences, Internet literacy programs in schools and launching several Web sites including an 'Internet safety awareness portal' at saferinternet.org.
