About Safer Internet Day

Safer Internet Day happens every February to promote positive and safe use of digital technology, especially for young people. It is organised globally by the Insafe/INHOPE network with the support of the European Commission.

Teachers are encouraged to start discussions with their students about internet safety and question what it means to have a safer internet. The day is celebrated by thousands of people globally each year, raising awareness by creating activities and events around the subject.

The new slogan for 2017 will be: “Be the change: unite for a better internet!”

An app competition ran last year by Welsh Government and UK Safer Internet Centre Co-ordinators.
