Today is Safer Internet Day #SID2014. What will you do to create a safer Internet?

SAFE IN WARKS ORANGEThe theme of Safer Internet Day (11th February 2014) is “Let’s create a better Internet together”. It is hoped that, for the eleventh year INHOPE and Insafe have run this campaign, all Internet users will join together in marking the day and working together to build a better Internet for all, but particularly for children and young people.

A range of events and activities will be taking place to mark the day and raise awareness of the issues across the Insafe network and beyond. Find out what is happening – and download resources – from the Safer Internet Day website: http://www.saferinternetday.org.

Speaking of the campaign, Janice Richardson, Insafe Coordinator said:

“Over the years, Safer Internet Day has become a landmark event in the online safety calendar, and an action that has been taken up across the globe. With this year’s theme of “Let’s create a better internet together”, we aim to emphasis the role that we ALL have to play in making the internet a better place. We also aim to showcase some of the great, collaborative work that is already taking place – between children and young people, their carers and educators, industry and politicians – to work towards making this a reality.”
