Safer Internet Day 2021

Safer Internet Day 2021 is on the Tuesday 9th of February and will be celebrated with the theme ‘An internet we trust – exploring reliability in the online world’. Safer Internet Day inspires a national conversation about using technology responsibly, respectfully, critically, and creatively. Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, the celebration sees thousands of organisations get involved to promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people. In 2020, we reached 49% of young people aged 8-17 and 26% of parents. We invite everyone to join us, and Safer Internet Day supporters across the globe, to help create a better internet on Tuesday 9th February 2021 and throughout the whole year.

This Safer Internet Day we are focussing on the theme of reliability online, opening up conversations with young people about how they explore information, looking at the strategies they can implement to spot and speak out against harmful and misleading content online.
