Telecommunications provider Flow is urging all stakeholders to make the Internet a safer place for all, especially young children and teenagers, as the world celebrates Safer Internet Day today.
This year’s theme is ‘Be the Change: Unite for a better Internet’.
“From cyberbullying to social networking, each year Safer Internet Day aims to raise awareness of emerging online issues and chooses a topic reflecting current concerns. The Internet provides excellent learning and communication opportunities but it also opens the door to some unwanted elements,” said Kayon Wallace, Director of Corporate Communications & Stakeholder Management at FLOW.
“Safer Internet Day is celebrated by hundreds of countries around the world, and at Flow, we are concentrating our efforts this year on promoting the healthy use of the Internet and connectivity among our young people, while also zooming in on the issue of human trafficking, sexual grooming and other illegal actions linked to online activities which are unfortunately on the rise,” added Wallace.
