Suffice it to say that the 23% of the under 18s in Italy spends between 5 and over 10 hours on the Internet (+4% compared to 2013), that the 8% is connected 24 hours a day and that the 44% does not need a fixed location but it connects from mobile devices such as smartphones, owned by the under 18's 85%. All, very often, without adult supervision and awareness of the tools used.

The stage in Todi sees speeches on thorny and technical topics which will be treated to get everyone, with extreme clarity and simplicity, the message that technologies are a means that everyone can and must afford to use as long as they have the right awareness . The web is a great opportunity for work, communication and sharing: WISTER operate so that no one is excluded”.
