Safer Internet Day 2021
In 2021, Safer Internet Day falls on Tuesday 9th February.
The theme this year is: “An internet we trust: exploring reliability in the online world’.
The aim is to celebrate the amazing range of information and opportunities online and its potential to inform, connect and inspire us, whilst also looking at how young people can separate fact from fiction.
The campaign focuses on how we can decide what to trust online, supporting young people to question, challenge and change the online world for the better. It explores how influence, persuasion and manipulation can impact young people’s decisions, opinions and what they share online.
It looks at the emotional impact navigating a misleading online world can have on young people and why it is important to create a supportive, critical and questioning culture online that encourages debate and discussion.
Hopefully young people will be able to develop the skills to support one another, and the strategies to spot and speak out against harmful and misleading content online.
