Safer Internet Day (SID) is celebrated in nearly 100 countries around the world in February of each year. In Europe, 30 countries mark the day with support from the European Commission’s Safer Internet Programme. SID is coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre to promote safer and more responsible use of online technology and mobile phones, especially among children and young people.
The theme for Safer Internet Day 2013 is Online Rights and Responsibilities with the slogan “Connect with Respect”. Safer Internet Day 2013 will take place on 5th February, and this will be the tenth anniversary of the event.
Get involved and help raise awareness of internet safety for this year’s Safer Internet Day. There are many things you can do, including helping to spread the word about the Day and running activities with children and young people, parents and carers and others in the community.
