The Safer Internet Initiative is important not just for our youth but also for the global community itself. Educators, adults, and caregivers from around the world need to come and work together in order for this initiative to work the way it is supposed to.

Protecting our children should be the number one concern when it comes to the internet. There are a lot of bad people out there in the world and the Safer Internet Initiative is just another way of informing the public about the risks and concerns about the internet, as well as educating others in how to make a better more secure internet around the world.

“After all we must do all that we can, to give our children the best in education and social upbringing – for while they are the youth of today, they shall be the leaders of tomorrow” John F, Kennedy
