Safer Internet Day is an annual event held on Tuesday 6th February and organised by the UK Safer Internet Centre, which aims to promote safe, responsible and positive use of internet technology.
It involves lots of local and national organisations coming together to raise awareness of correct internet practices. They look at lots of topics including consent, ownership and data privacy, and it runs with the slogan, ‘Together for a better internet’. They also raise issues about cyberbullying, digital identity and social networks.
The main goal of Safer Internet Day is to raise awareness and start a conversation about internet safety. Its aim is to make a safer and better internet for everyone, especially children and young people.
The Safer Internet Day website invites you to get involved with the day with offers of films, free resources and quizzes!
