Much work initiative has focused on creating a safer and better digital world for its youngest users, their parents, teachers and carers, through a range of online tools, services, resources and initiatives from a myriad of stakeholders. In order to celebrate this progress, Commissioner Mariya Gabriel launched the #SafeInternet4EU Awards on Safer Internet Day 2018, acknowledging also the leading role which the European Union is playing in the field, following up to 20 years of EC-funded safer and better internet programmes.
