What is Safer Internet Day?
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 inspire a national conversation.
Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre the celebration sees hundreds of organisations get involved to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.
Globally, Safer Internet Day is celebrated in over a hundred countries, coordinated by the joint Insafe/INHOPE network, with the support of the European Commission, and national Safer Internet Centres across Europe.
The day offers the opportunity to highlight positive uses of technology and to explore the role we all play in helping to create a better and safer online community. It calls upon young people, parents, carers, teachers, social workers, law enforcement, companies, policymakers, and wider, to join together in helping to create a better internet.
Connect With Care
ITSB is an official partner of the AFC Bournemouth Community Sports Trust (CST) and sponsors the Connect With Care initiative to educate pupils in the Bournemouth area on the potential dangers of the internet when using their computers, smartphones or tablets. This year, we’re running a Connect With Care session in one of the local schools on Safer Internet Day, to help educate young people and their teachers on internet safety.
