Safer Internet Day 2019 will be celebrated globally on Tuesday 5th February.
Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, the celebration sees hundreds of organisations get involved (my children’s school is supporting this, as are many others in the area). They will join a national conversation about using technology responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively. The day offers the opportunity to highlight positive uses of technology and to explore the role we all play in helping to create a better and safer online community. It calls upon young people, parents, carers, teachers, social workers, law enforcement, companies, policymakers, and wider, to join together and help to create a better internet.
The UK Safer Internet Centre is a partnership of three leading charities – Childnet International, the Internet Watch Foundation and South West Grid for Learning, (SWGfL) – with a shared mission to make the internet a better place for children and young people.
