Safer Internet Day 2015 Activities in Brazil
We are happy to celebrate the seventh Brazilian Safer Internet Day this next 10 February 2015. Once again SaferNet Brasil is coordinating a national mobilization to engage youth, schools, NGO's and authorities to promote a safer internet in Brazil.
The Brazilian Safer Internet Day commission work in different areas to promote educational resources and tips that can be adopted for all to profit the good resources available online. To increase digital citizenship we must strengthen our efforts to educate and prevent cybercrimes below just fight against then. The Internet isn't dangerous itself and we have to promote the opportunities and its potential for all ages, specially for children, working on rights and responsibilities.
The Brazilian Safer Internet Day commission are working to encourage a national debate to highlight the public dimension of cyberspace and the ethical commitment that this dimension implies, considering the challenge of misinterpreting the notion that the Internet is a lawless area where we can do anything with certainty of impunity.
When we talk about a safer Internet we want to talk about digital citizenship, about ethics in this wonderful and planetary new public space, trying to always to respect the culture of diversity that Internet can enrich.

SaferNet Brasil is an NGO founded to protect children online and promote the Human Rights on the Internet. Since 2006 SaferNet runs the Brazilian National Reporting Center of Cybercrimes against Human Rights. We are a civil society body that held formal cooperation agreements with the main public and private institutions in Brazil, such as the Brazilian Federal Attorney General, Federal Police, National Secretariat for Human Rights at the Office of the President of the Republic, Brazilian Internet Steering Committee (CGI.br), GVT, Petrobras and other NGO's.
Since 2005 we designed and implemented nationwide social projects aiming at building an Internet safer for children and young people in Brazil, promote responsible use of ICT and create the necessary conditions to ensure the effective protection of Human Rights on the Internet in Brazil. Our aim is to contribute with a culture of accountability to allow children, youngsters and adults to build healthy and safe social networks through the appropriate use of technology.
Over the last 9 years, SaferNet attended the United Nations worldwide event concerning the Internet Governance process and has organized two main workshops to discuss the strategies to prevent and fight child sexual abuse on developing countries. At educational level, SaferNet works in different ways: doing researches about youth online life, promoting e-Safety workshops with children, teens and educators at main public and private schools, creating National campaigns, videos, Booklets and games to contribute to Digital Media Literacy and citizenship.
