Every February on Safer Internet Day, people around the world join forces to teach children and youth about using online technology in a safe and responsible way
The Safer Internet Day is celebrated around the world for the 12th consecutive year. It is the flagship event of the Safer Internet Programme supported by the European Commission, reaching millions of people in over 100 countries. On this occasion, schoolkids, parents, teachers, policy makers take time to learn, engage or discuss ways for creating a better Internet for kids.
Safer Internet Day (SID) is organised by Insafe in February of each year to promote safer and more responsible use of online technology and mobile phones, especially among children and young people across the world.
Safer Internet Day 2015 will be celebrated with the strapline, once again, of "Let’s create a better internet together" following the success of last year's campaign.
Over the years the INSAFE network has produced the biggest library of free resources on child online safety and security in the world. There are manuals, lessons plans, educational videos, serious games, open educational platforms, which exist in all EU languages and are adapted to the local contexts. They reach schools, parents, youth clubs and most importantly the kids themselves.
Safer Internet Day is being celebrated across the world from Argentina to Russia, Mauritius to New Zealand. Our selection of highlights kicks off in Australia, hops over to India and dwells for a little longer in Europe to showcase some activities organised by INSAFE the EU-funded Safer Internet network.
