    Safer Internet Day to Hold Worldwide

    Date published: 5 February 2017
    Safer Internet Day (SID) will be held on February 7 worldwide, under this year’s theme “Be the Change: Unite for a Better Internet”. SID is celebrated globally in February of each year to promote the safe and positive use of digital technology for children and young people. The day sees hundreds of organizations unite to raise awareness of online safety issues and get involved to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.

    The day, which comprises many events and activities, offers the opportunity to highlight positive uses of technology and to explore the role people can 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 others to unite together in helping to create a better Internet.

    Celebrating Safer Internet Day started eleven years ago as a European Union and Insafe network initiative in the European states. In 2009, committees were formed in countries to strengthen ties amongst them and facilitate cooperation on online safety issues. Over the years, celebration crossed boundaries of the European Union; the day which used to be celebrated in 14 countries is now celebrated in nearly 100 countries worldwide.
