What is Safer Internet Day?

Safer Internet Day (SID) promotes the safe and positive use of digital technology, especially for children and young people. Beginning as an EU-funded ‘SafeBorders’ project in 2004, Safer Internet Day (SID) is now celebrated across 200 countries and territories worldwide!

SID prioritizes protection and empowerment being equally important regarding the digital wellbeing of youth. This focus on empowerment equips our youth with the knowledge and tools they need to engage in a positive online experience all year long.

Raising awareness

Each year, emerging online issues and current concerns are highlighted to raise awareness and start important conversations. Key topics include:

  • Cyberbullying
  • Social networking
  • Digital identity
