Safer Internet Day 2018
Create, Connect and Share Respect
Safer Internet Day is the 6th February 2018.
Safer Internet Day (SID) 2018 takes place across Europe to promote safer internet use for all users. This year, the theme for SID is "Create, Connect and Share Respect: A better internet starts with you". Across Ireland, over 70,000 young people will take part in the day, promoting safer internet use in their clubs, schools and organisations.
If you and your school or organisation are taking part in Safer Internet Day 2018, use the #BeInCntrl hashtag to share how you promoted being in control of your lives online.
