Today is Safer Internet Day – let’s all do what we can to help make the internet a safer place!
Here’s some information about Safer Internet Day in the US:
Safer Internet Day gained official recognition in the U.S. in late 2012, with a joint agreement between the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the European Commission to work together to build a better Internet for youth. The U.S. celebration got a big boost in 2013, when Insafe appointed ConnectSafely.org as the U.S.’s coordinator going forward.
Our plan is to make each Safer Internet Day U.S. (SID U.S.) a highly collaborative project that promotes the efforts of Internet users of all ages, interests and backgrounds to make the Internet a better place and the world a better place with the help of the Internet. This year we are featuring the good deeds and leadership of young people in “playing your part for a better Internet,” the EC’s theme for SID 2016.
If you’re outside the US and would like to find Safer Internet Day activities in your area, check out SaferInternetDay.org.
