Today, Tuesday 7 February 2017 is Safer Internet Day.  Did you know that globally, Safer Internet Day is celebrated in over a hundred countries?


What’s it all about?

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.

This year for Safer Internet Day 2017, the UK Safer Internet Centre is showcasing the power of image in digital youth culture today.

Image and video sharing are powerful tools of communication, self-expression and creativity, but there can be pressures, risks and potential negative consequences.

We need to ensure children have the skills, knowledge, confidence and resilience to communicate using images and videos safely and creatively.

This Safer Internet Day aims to empower children to have a positive time online and inspire everyone to ‘Be the change’ and use the positive power of image to help create a better internet.
