There are now only two weeks to go until Safer Internet Day! We are running down the top 6 things you can do now to get ready to celebrate on the 5th February.
1. Sign up as a supporter
By signing up as a supporter and telling us a bit more about your plans for the day you will appear on our map of the UK which demonstrates the fantastic range and scope of activities happening across the country! Without the amazing work of all of the Safer Internet Day supporters we wouldn’t be able to reach and inspire such a fantastic number of young people as a result of Safer Internet Day.
2. Watch the video content
Our Safer Internet Day TV 2019 films are engaging, short videos which aim to help young people delve deeper into their ideas around online consent. The films act as an extension of the education packs and as such aim to be conversation starters around the topic of consent in a digital world.
3. Download the Education Packs
The Education Packs are tailored made for 3-7s, 7-11s, 11-14s, 14-18s and parents and carers, along with some guidance for educators. Available in English and Welsh these free packs include lesson plans, posters, presentations, activities and more!
