Taiwan Safer Internet Day Committee - ECPAT Taiwan

Last updated: 2024-02-05

About our SID activities

Together with our partners, ECPAT Taiwan will hold a press conference and panel discussion. We will invite Children's Advisory Representatives, legislators, and ICP companies to share their perspectives and concerns and discuss how to use their influence and ability to create a safer and better digital world.

What we are doing to create a better internet...

In recent years, with the proliferation of digital tools and the lowering of the age of internet use, issues related to child sexual exploitation and image-based exploitation facilitated by the internet have become increasingly severe and have garnered more attention. We have also observed a growing number of young people and adults becoming victims of digital/image-based sexual violence. On Safer Internet Day, we will advocate for public awareness of digital sexual violence and online child exploitation, reducing potential risks and providing the necessary support and assistance to victims.
