FOSI is excited to host its European Forum in Paris on May 22, 2014. The event, titled “Creating a Better Internet”, will focus on the European Union’s commitment to build not just a safer Internet but a better Internet for children and teenagers. The event will draw on those creating innovative and educational content for children, as well as those in industry, law enforcement and government who are working to ensure that children have safe and productive online experiences.
We look forward to highlighting the best of the groundbreaking work and thinking that is currently happening in this space from Europe and the UK, as well as to share the experiences from the United States and around the world.
