Safer Internet Day 2014 Youth Event

On the 11th February 2014, 7 young people took part in the Safer Internet Day youth panel event at Microsoft, London. 

The youth panel discussed what steps the UK has taken to create a better internet, and what more could be done to ensure that young people use technology creatively, responsibly and safely.

Bringing together policymakers, government, educators and industry experts, the discussion at Microsoft's offices considered the responsibility we all have in creating a better internet; including the role that young people, parents, schools and industry play.
