EU celebrates Safer Internet Day 6 February
On 6th February 2004, the Safer Internet Day will be celebrated
across Europe. This event focuses on children's rights to a
safer Internet as part of the European Commission's Safer
Internet Programme. It showcases existing safer Internet
projects, videos and awards developed with the backing of the
programme. These programmes involve actors from the private,
public and voluntary sectors. Safer Internet project members
have contributed to several remarkable achievements. In October
2003 a worldwide child-porn ring was broken up following a tip
from the Internet hotline association INHOPE. In November 2003
the new Internet Content Rating Association content filtering
platform ICRAplus was launched. Events will be staged
simultaneously in 12 European countries (Denmark, Germany,
Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands,
Norway, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom), as well as in Australia.
These events involve public authorities, the Internet industry
and hundreds of other organisations.
