Safer Internet Day 2015

Safer Internet Day 2015 will be celebrated globally on Tuesday 10th February with the theme ‘Let’s create a better internet together’.

Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre the celebration sees hundreds of organisations get involved to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people. For SID2014, over 650 organisations got involved, reaching 25% of children and 18% of teenagers.

The UK Safer Internet Centre – a partnership of three leading charities; Childnet, the South West Grid for Learning and the Internet Watch Foundation – provide resources for children, schools and families, and tools for getting involved at www.saferinternet.org.uk.

Globally, Safer Internet Day is celebrated in over a hundred countries, coordinated by the joint Insafe/INHOPE network, with the support of the European Commission, and 31 national Safer Internet Centres across Europe.

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 in helping to create a better internet. Ultimately, a better internet is up to us!

Last year an unprecedented number of organisations got involved in the day! Hopefully, you will find it hard to avoid hearing a mention of Safer Internet Day before or on the actual day!

Safer Internet Day TV will be presented by CBBC Friday Download stars Molly and Harvey, this will stream live on 10th February at 11am, 2pm and 7pm. It will be available to watch at www.saferinternetdaytv.com and www.youtube.com/UKSIC, the programme will feature advice and practical information from experts and providers such as Facebook, Google and Twitter on internet safety and issues from cyberbullying to reporting and privacy, as well as messages of support from lots of well-known faces!
