About our SID activities
The Romanian Safer Internet Centre will celebrate Safer Internet Day 2020 by organising a press conference on 11 February 2020 in Bucharest, entitled "Child sexual abuse images online". The event will focus on presenting the 2019 report of the national hotline, more exactly the latest data on the illegal content found on the Romanian web pages, obtained within the esc_ABUZ reporting line. The conference will feature speakers ranging from Save the Children specialists to government authorities and educational experts, and it will gather representatives from public institutions, journalists, social workers and other relevant stakeholders.
What we are doing to support the SID 2020 slogan of "Together for a better internet"…
As part of the Romanian Safer Internet Centre's tradition of marking February as Internet Safety Month, we will be launching a national contest in collaboration with the Ministry of Education. The national competition will focus on Fake News and will encourage teachers and students to implement educational activities in schools related to critical thinking and send us of a short video of the results. The winners will be announced at a public event held in May 2020.
