Join us on Tuesday, 8 February 2022 as we celebrate the nineteenth edition of Safer Internet Day with actions taking place right across the globe.
With a theme once again of "Together for a better internet", the day will call upon all stakeholders to join together to make the internet a safer and better place for all, and especially for children and young people.
Much of the day's activity - and campaign build up - will play out on social media. Be sure to check our Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and TikTok profiles, and review the #SaferInternetDay and #SID2022 hashtags to see the discussions taking place.
Over the years, Safer Internet Day has become a landmark event in the online safety calendar. Starting as an initiative of the EU SafeBorders project in 2004 and taken up by the Insafe network as one of its earliest actions in 2005, Safer Internet Day has grown beyond its traditional geographic zone and is now celebrated in approximately 200 countries and territories worldwide.
From cyberbullying to social networking to digital identity, each year Safer Internet Day aims to raise awareness of emerging online issues and current concerns.
Safer Internet Centres and Safer Internet Day Committees
Insafe is a European network of Safer Internet Centres (SICs). Every national Centre implements awareness and educational campaigns, runs a helpline, and works closely with youth to ensure an evidence-based, multi-stakeholder approach to creating a better internet.
However, Safer Internet Day is also celebrated outside Europe. In 2009, the concept of Safer Internet Day Committees was introduced, to strengthen the bonds with countries outside the network and invest in a harmonised promotion of the campaign across the world. More than 100 global SID Committees (and those working towards SID Committee status) now work closely with the Safer Internet Day Coordination Team, which is based at the heart of the European Union in Brussels.
