International: FOSI First Ladies Initiative for Online Safety
FOSI First Ladies Initiative for Online Safety
At FOSI’s European Conference in London, held on May 10th, 2011, FOSI announced the launch of its First Ladies Initiative for Online Safety with support from the First Ladies of the Dominican Republic and Mexico. The goal of the Initiative is to connect First Ladies in developing countries and developed countries around the issue of online safety and digital citizenship.
FOSI is asking First Ladies around the world to join the Initiative by promoting education efforts within their countries and engaging in a cross-cultural dialogue to raise global awareness and spur international cooperation. Through the Initiative, First Ladies will encourage safe and responsible online use through a combination of tools, rules and schools. The Initiative is a means of linking the First Ladies in a common cause that not only directly impacts their own countries, but also, like the Internet, transcends national borders.
