Thursday was a big day here. We attended the Safer Internet Forum for the first time. There were two big sessions, one on the questions we prepared about Rights and Responsibilities on the Internet and the other one about Internet in our Pocket.
Actually, I actively participated in both, but the discussion was more open in the second session, where I had a five minute speech at the beginning. I’m going to very shortly summarize both sessions below.
In the first session we discussed that issues of rights and responsibilities are for Europe very important and that shows us the European digital agenda too.
We could ask the Commissioner questions and this is only question I can remember now:
- How can we get respect on the Internet?
- I asked a question too and it was: In real life there is a definition about what crime means, is there a definition on the internet too?
Then we spoke about the main issues of the internet. I added an interesting opinion to the problem, which you can find on Twitter.
Internet is like an experiment. Best way to learn is to try it.
After lunch, there were three parallel sessions running on different themes. Our group had the Internet in my Pocket. Mainly I think it’s a really interesting theme so I enjoyed it.
We had 5 minutes at the beginning of the session to present our opinions. I prepared the presentation and was a speaker too. It was about the usage of mobile phones on a normal day. We added our opinions to this theme and then discussed it with parents and other participants. It was great!
After that we went to the shopping mall. The six most active participants were chosen prior to the dinner. We got a great opportunity to think about. We got the possibility to share opinions, contact industry experts and for this I can only say thank you to the Insafe team and Vivendi company.
