Laura Higgins, Director of Community Safety and Civility, Roblox

Roblox is a place where people come together to connect, create, and express themselves through immersive, interactive shared experiences. Every day, nearly fifty million people around the world play, learn, communicate, and expand their friendships as they explore millions of user-generated digital experiences, all built by our developer community on the Roblox platform. We are proud to support Safer Internet Day 2022 and this year’s theme; ‘All fun and games? Exploring respect and relationships online.’

Safer Internet Day provides a great opportunity for conversations between kids and teens, parents and caregivers, about how young people engage on different platforms, how they manage their online friendships, and the impact video games have on them. Understanding these topics and having regular conversations about them with kids and teens helps equip them with the skills they need to create safe and positive online spaces for themselves and those around them.
