Safer Internet Day is organised by Insafe each year in February to promote safer and more responsible use of online technology specifically for children and young people. This year's awareness day is Tuesday 7th February 2012.
The 2012 Safer Internet Day (SID) will focus on the idea of discovering the internet with your children and will use the slogan: "Discover the digital world together... safely!" It will encourage families to work together to stay safe online.
Insafe unites national Awareness Centres in 27 countries in the European Union, Norway, Iceland and Russia. The centres comprise of organisations who work together to raise internet safety awareness at a national level. Partners include schools, libraries, youth groups and industry to promote good e-safety practices. Networking at a European level allows centres to share information, showcase successful initiatives and draw on others' experience.
Have fun online, but be sure to keep yourself and your little ones safe too.
