MovieStarPlanet Celebrates Safer Internet Day 2015

Safer Internet Day (SID) is held on the 2nd Tuesday in February each year to promote safer and more responsible use of online technology and mobile phones, especially among children and young people across the world.

The theme for this year is ‘Let’s create a better internet together’. It focuses on how we all – children, young people, parents and guardians, teachers, industry, politicians and decision makers alike – can help create a better internet. The event, which started as an EU initiative, is now celebrated in more than 100 countries.

In championing a better internet, we want to encourage young people to embrace technology and we want to make the most of their online experience, while giving them the resilience, skills, knowledge and support they need to navigate any online risks they may come across.

Raising awareness is also our responsibility

For the 3rd year running MovieStarPlanet helped celebrate the SID by having a special theme in game. This included specially designed in game T-shirts and other SID items that proved to be very popular with our users.

As a member of the working group set up by the Danish Safer Internet Center, MovieStarPlanet attended a workshop for parents at the Danish Film Institute to celebrate Safer Internet Day 2015.

We will also be attending the EU Safer Internet Forum in October 2015 to show our commitment to these EU Commission events that a re aimed at creating a better internet for children and young people.
