What is Safer Internet Day?

Safer Internet Day 2017 will take place on the 7th February with the theme:

Be the change: Unite for a better internet!

Safer Internet Day is celebrated globally in February each year to promote the safe and positive use of digital technology for children and young people. 

Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre the celebration sees hundreds of organisations unite to raise awareness of online safety issues and run events and activities right across the UK.

As a result of our collective action Safer Internet Day 2016 reached 2.8 million children and 2.5 million parents!

We hope that you will join with us, and Safer Internet Day supporters across the globe, on Tuesday 7 February 2017 to be the change and unite for a better internet!

This Safer Internet Day let’s make the internet a place of kindness and respect!
