Lagos – Nigeria, February 20th
Since 2016, W.TEC has marked the Safer Internet Day in Lagos with huge events which has a lasting impact on our youth. For 2019 W.TEC took it a step further from organising just one event to organising 3 events, partnering with other organisers and also conducting an online campaign.
The Safer Internet Day (SID) is marked globally, each year in February to promote safer and more responsible use of online technology and mobiles by our youth. Over the years, Safer Internet Day (SID) has become a landmark event in the online safety calendar. Starting as an initiative of the EU SafeBorders project in 2004 and taken up by the Insafe network as one of its earliest actions in 2005, Safer Internet Day has grown beyond its traditional geographic zone and is now celebrated in approximately 140 countries worldwide.
