Safer Internet Day 2021 is just around the corner, and we hope that you will help us to promote a better internet on Tuesday, February 9th.
Safer Internet Day (SID) is an EU wide initiative to promote a safer internet for all users, especially young people.
Webwise is responsible for the coordination and promotion of Safer Internet Day in Ireland and while the celebrations will look a little different this year, we are reaching out to all our online safety stakeholders, partners, friends, and colleagues to help make SID 2021 as vibrant and meaningful as ever.
As we rely on technology more than ever to help us educate, work, and stay connected, Safer Internet Day 2021 is an important opportunity to promote online safety and to help create a safer, better, internet.
Last year over 170,000 people got involved in Safer Internet Day, and we are asking for your support to help us to reach even more children, families, schools, and organisations in Ireland.
Here are some ways to get involved and help to support Safer Internet Day 2021.
- On Safer Internet Day Webwise will broadcast a short webinar for post-primary students reflecting on the role technology has played in our lives this year and explores ways to help students manage their online wellbeing.
- The event will provide an opportunity to hear about the experiences of figures from the world of entertainment, sport, cyberpsychology and the tech industry.
- Joining the discussion are 2FM’s; Eoghan McDermott, Cyberpsychologist; Dr Nicola Fox-Hamilton, Public Policy Lead for Kids and Families at Google; Dr Alicia Blum-Ross, former Dublin Footballer Eamon Fennell and Billie from the Webwise Youth panel.
