The event, titled “Safer Internet Day 2015: Actions & Activism Toward a Better Net & World”, will be held on the Facebook campus in Menlo Park. It will feature a keynote address by California Attorney General Kamala D. Harris; remarks by Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg; three panels involving youth, industry and social activists; and a presentation by National PTA President Otha Thornton.

Sandberg is widely acknowledged as one of the world’s most influential women in business.

The gathering is being hosted by, a Silicon Valley-based non-profit organization focusing on online safety, privacy, security and digital well-being, the press release said.

The event, which is scheduled from 1:00 to 5:30pm PST, will include three panels: “Beyond Bullying: Dealing with Trolling & Social Cruelty”; “Using Technology to Effect Social Change” and “Wrapping It All Up: A Conversation with Industry Leaders”, featuring executives from Instagram, Google and Twitter.

The event will be streamed live on

“But even as we share the best advice from industry, government and nonprofit leaders, we will remember that the title of our event is Safer Internet Day, not Safe Internet Day. That’s because no amount of precautions can possibly guarantee that nothing will go wrong any more than air bags, seat belts and even safe driving can prevent all car accidents” said co-director Larry Magid.

“It’s not about avoiding all risk but about managing the inherent risks associated with just about anything we do — in this case, using powerful and connected technologies to enhance our lives”, he said in an article contributed to the Huffington Post.

This year represents the 11th Safer Internet Day, which originated from a project of the European Commission in 2004. Last year, held its inaugural Safer Internet Day event in Washington, D.C.
