While Europe celebrate the tenth edition of the event, we are happy to celebrate the fifth Brazilian Safer Internet Day this next 5 February 2013. Once again SaferNet Brazil 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 quality and safety tips that can be adopted for all to profit the good resources available in cyberspace. To increase a safer Internet 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.
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 that for all this space are related, 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 prevention and a safer use we want to talk about Cyber-Citizenship, about ethics in this wonderful and planetary new public space that is the Cyberspace, trying to always to respect the culture diversity that Internet can enrich.
