What is Safer Internet Day?

An annual, global campaign, for the past 16 years, Safer Internet Day (SID) celebrations aim to raise awareness of both a safer and a better internet, where everyone is empowered to use technology not just safely but also responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively. The campaign aims to reach out to children and young people, parents and carers, teachers, educators and social workers, as well as industry, decision makers and politicians, to encourage everyone to play their part in creating a better internet. This will allow each and every user to make the most of all the opportunities new technologies have to offer, regardless of their age, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation or gender, while also steering clear of risks and challenges.
