Safer Internet Day

Be the change: unite for a better internet

Safer Internet Day 2017 is being celebrated globally on Tuesday 7th February with the theme 'Be the change: unite for a better internet'.

At Childnet, we're one of the three charities that form the UK Safer Internet Centre, and in that role we help to coordinate Safer Internet Day in the UK.

Safer Internet Day is celebrated globally in February each year to promote the safe and positive use of digital technology for children and young people, and the campaign sees over 1,000 organisations unite to raise awareness of online safety issues and run events and activities right across the UK.

As a result of our collective action Safer Internet Day 2016 reached 2.8 million children and 2.5 million parents!
