What is SID2015?
Safer Internet Day 2015 is a day which will be celebrated on Tuesday 10th February with the slogan 'Lets create a better internet together'.
SID 2015 is coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre.The day will see many organisations come together to help promote the safe, positive and responsible use of digital technology for children and young people. Last year for SID2014 650 organisations got involved and 25% of children and 18% of teenagers were reached.
The following video will give you an insight into the day:
The UK Safer Internet Centre – a partnership of three leading charities; Childnet, the South
West Grid for Learning and the Internet Watch Foundation – provide resources for children,
schools and families, and tools for getting involved at www.saferinternet.org.uk.
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 31 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. Ultimately, a better internet is
up to us
In addition to coordinating Safer Internet Day, the UK Safer Internet Centre delivers a wide range of activity to promote the safe and responsible use of technology:
• Founded and operates an e-safety helpline for professionals working with children in the UK.

• Operates the UK’s hotline for reporting online criminal content.

• Develops new educational resources for children, parents and carers and teachers to meet emerging trends in the fast-changing online environment.

• Delivers education sessions for children, parents, carers, teachers and the wider children’s workforce.

• Shapes policy at school, industry and government level, both in the UK and internationally, and facilitates youth panels to give young people a voice on these issues.
