The Alliance to better protect minors online is a self-regulatory initiative aiming to improve the online environment for children and young people. The framework of the Alliance is set in a Statement of Purpose, announced during Safer Internet Day 2017.
Safer Internet Day (SID) is an international event taking place in February every year, which promotes a safer and more responsible use of online technology and mobile phones by children and young people across the world.
Young people and children are today amongst the largest user groups of online and mobile technologies in Europe. To empower and protect them, it is therefore necessary to develop a proper strategy to encapsulate their needs.
