MySafety and Nyheter24-Gruppen have together arranged the event Årets Närängel (Net Angel of the Year) since a few years back. The reason behind this event is that we are witnessing a harsh social climate on the Internet. Many people and official persons have been exposed to hatred and violations online. That is why they want to encourage and celebrate the people who actively are contributing to a better climate online. The event has grown every year and for the event in 2017, Petré was involved in order to create a starlit gala.

The gala took place at the Museum for the Performing Arts in Stockholm where the guests were served a three course dinner. Four awards were distributed to winners selected by a highly competent jury. Gabriella Bark and Daniel Paris were the hosts of the evening and Maxida Märak performed beautiful yoiking and singing. Paula Fenjima Manrique held an inspirational speech based on her own experiences of online hatred and she really touched the audience. The grand prize “Årets Nätängel” was given to blogger and influencer Sara Dahlström.

It was a loving and warm event and we hope that the gala will help us all to act friendlier towards one another.
