Safer Internet Day 2019 at the Biggest IT Expo of Nepal

ChildSafeNet had set up a stall at the Computer Association of Nepal (CAN) Info-Tech 2019 to promote safer internet for children and young people, as a part of celebration of the Safer Internet Day 2019 in Nepal. The biggest IT event of Nepal was organized from 29 January to 3 February 2019 in Kathmandu.

At the Info-Tech, ChildSafeNet conducted a paperless survey on social media usage, in collaboration with Digital Broadcast Initiative - Equal Access. The survey was conducted by ChildSafeNet volunteers, using ten tablet computers. Moreover, ChildSafeNet reached directly more than 50,000 people with cyber safety messages

ChildSafeNet is super excited to collaborate for celebration of the Safer Internet Day 2019, as the focal organization in Nepal. Safer Internet Day is celebrated globally in February each year to promote the safe and positive use of digital technology for children and young people and inspire a national conversation.

The Safer Internet Day offers the opportunity to highlight positive uses of technology and to explore the role we all play in helping to create a better and safer online community. It calls upon young people, parents, carers, teachers, social workers, law enforcement, companies, policymakers, and wider, to join together in helping to create a better internet. Join us in promoting safer internet for children and young people. Get involved to play your part!
