11th of February 2020 is Safer Internet Day 2020 which is celebrated globally with the slogan ‘Together for a Better Internet’. In the UK, the day will be celebrated with a specific focus on identity online.
Safer Internet Day will encourage young people to explore how they manage their online identity, and how the internet shapes how they think of themselves and others. We want Safer Internet Day 2020 to celebrate difference and help us work towards creating a truly inclusive internet.
The campaign will focus on what makes up young people’s online identity – such as the facts or characteristics, how others perceive and interact with young people, as well as how online services identify young people. The campaign is also aimed at how offline stereotypes and discrimination are challenged or reinforced online.
We invite parents and carers to check Safer Internet Day 2020 website where you can find online safety tips, advice and resources to help children and young people stay safe online.
Stay safe and informed!
