As part of Safer Internet Day, the Rt. Hon Alun Michael MP is inviting MPs to attend the UK Safer Internet Centre’s event at Portcullis House on 7th February 2012 at 4pm.
Safer Internet Day 2012 is celebrated worldwide and this year is an opportunity to encourage users young and old to "discover the digital world together safely". An inspirational array of activity is taking place nationwide, coordinated by the UK Safer Internet Centre (www.saferinternet.org.uk), with all activities focusing attention on empowering all generations to safely benefit from the opportunities that the internet offers. For further information on national activities taking place for Safer Internet Day, please visit www.saferinternet.org.uk.
To bring the Connecting Generations theme to life, the Safer Internet Centre will host a roundtable discussion on Safer Internet Day, bringing together a group of 9-11 year olds, a group of 13-17 year olds and a group of parents, carers and grandparents, to listen to their experiences, needs and safety concerns, providing invited guests, including industry and MPs, with an opportunity to hear from them about the real experiences that users have online, and to understand areas where they need help in using the internet safely.
To register your interest in attending this afternoon discussion or to find out more about the event, please contact Sharon McQuarrie on 020 7639 6967 or firstname.lastname@example.org
The UK Safer Internet Centre is a partnership of three leading charitable organisations, Childnet International, the South West Grid for Learning (SWGfL) and the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF). Collectively, these organisations have operated for 38 years in online safety; all working to make the internet a better environment, mirroring the conclusions of Professor Tanya Byron in her report to UK Government, by reducing availability (of illegal content), restricting access (where appropriate) and increasing resilience (through education, awareness and empowerment). All partners recognise the unparalleled opportunities the internet offers and actively encourage its positive use for social, leisure, economic and educational advancement. The partners all work towards the Childnet target; to make the Internet a great and safe place for children.
