The Internet has drastically changed our world. We talk to friends, research topics, buy products and send emails for work and leisure. Unfortunately, all this time we spend on the Web increases our chances of being targeted. Now, every cyber citizen must become "cyber smart" or face the consequences. From protecting your computer to protecting yourself, it's all here. Do you know what you need to know?

Youth Summit for Online Safety

Lead a Project

Express your vision of online safety by making a poster and entering our contest. The best posters will be printed and spotlighted at the upcoming World Summit on the Information Society in November.

Join us as we uncover the notion of cyber citizenship and online safety. Read articles by young people and contribute your own writing. What is your experience navigating the unpredictable World Wide Web? Go to Panorama's current issue

If there is something you want to say about interactions in cyberspace, join or start a thread in our discussion boards. Prefer to observe? Come in and read what other people from a variety of backgrounds think.

Last June, i-SAFE America, Microsoft and TakingITGlobal in conjunction with the University of California, San Diego put on the Youth Summit for Online Safety. The summit produced ideas from a youth perspective and promoted awareness and action on Internet safety. Stay tuned – outcomes and pictures from the Summit will be available shortly!
