On the occasion of 2009 World Telecommunication and Information Society Day (WTISD) dedicated to ‘Protecting Children in Cyberspace’, the ITU Secretary-General announced a year-long Call for Action, in which he encouraged all stakeholders (policy-makers, regulators, operators, industry, NGOs) to promote the adoption of policies and strategies that will ensure safe access to online resources for the world's children and young people.
