Safer Internet Day 2024
Through the years, Safer Internet Day has evolved into a significant milestone in the online safety landscape.
Originating as an endeavour within the EU SafeBorders project in 2004 and subsequently adopted by the Insafe network as one of its earliest initiatives in 2005, Safer Internet Day has expanded far beyond its original geographic boundaries and is now observed in nearly 170 countries across the globe – impressive!
Safer Internet Day is the UK’s biggest celebration of online safety, taking place on the 6th of February 2024. Each year they cover an online issue or theme that resonates with the experiences of young people whilst using the internet, this year’s theme is based around ‘Inspiring change? Making a difference, managing influence, and navigating change online’.
