Safer Internet Day (SID) is organised by Insafe in February of each year to promote safer and more responsible use of online technology and mobile phones, especially among children and young people across the world.
Safer Internet Day 2015 will be celebrated with the strapline, once again, of "Let’s create a better internet together" following the success of last year's campaign.
Join the global Safer Internet Day and find an activity for you!
Over the years the INSAFE network has produced the biggest library of free resources on child online safety and security in the world. There are manuals, lessons plans, educational videos, serious games, open educational platforms, which exist in all EU languages and are adapted to the local contexts. They reach schools, parents, youth clubs and most importantly the kids themselves.
Safer Internet Day is being celebrated across the world from Argentina to Russia, Mauritius to New Zealand.
