On the 7th of February 2017, the Nigeria Integrity Film Awards (Homevida) & National Film & Video Censors Board (NFVCB) with support from Google celebrated the 2017 Safer Internet Day (SID). The event held at the VirginRose Resort in Victoria Island Lagos, and about 150 students from various school across Lagos were in attendance.
Policy and Government Relations Manager, Google, Mrs Titi Akinsanmi-Bolarinwa spoke to the students about the valuable use of the internet and tips on how to be safe online. She also spoke about the web rangers project which was launched last year in Nigeria and encouraged other students to join in the experience. The webrangers project is a program aimed to train young people to become online safety ambassadors.
The day was packed full with various fun activities which includes quiz, debates, drama, making a vlog and the Pop the Hate Balloon Challenge. At the end of the fun activities, they were quizzed on what they learnt and prizes were presented to the participants.
