What we are doing to support the SID 2021 theme of "Together for a better internet"…
We believe the internet is the greatest invention ever created. But it's how we all use it that really counts – especially when it comes to protecting the next generation. Parents, educators, policymakers and our industry all have a shared responsibility to empower the digital citizens of the future.
Continuing to integrate child protection tools into our products forms a significant part of our design process, and our drive to educate adults and empower young people to make informed choices online will remain at the heart of our approach to creating a better internet.
Since 2007, our strategy has included collaborating with European Schoolnet to produce toolkits that give families, educators and children practical help on important topics like online safety, cyberbullying and critical thinking. Every child should have the chance to grow up feeling empowered online, so we’re proud that schools and families worldwide have used over 2 million of our toolkits in 18 different languages.
