Safer Internet Day (SID) is an international event taking place in February every year coinciding with local Save Education Now month in Nigeria. It promotes a safer and a more responsible use of online technology by children and young people across the world. Over the years, Safer Internet Day (SID) has become a landmark event in the online safety calendar.
Starting in 2004 under the first Safer Internet Action Plan as an initiative of the EU funded SafeBorders project and taken up by Insafe, the network of Safer Internet Centres, Safer Internet Day has grown beyond its traditional geographic zone and is now celebrated in more than 170 countries across all continents, and reaches millions of people worldwide.
Each year SID calls for action from the many players involved in providing a safer and better digital environment for the young users: decision makers at EU, national and international level, industry, civil society, educators, parents and young people themselves.
Internet is a powerful tool with enormous opportunities for learning, enhancing skills and acquiring new abilities and knowledge, as highlighted especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, with opportunities come risks. The goal of SID is to raise awareness but also to help by concrete actions to provide protection and empowerment of children and young people online.
