Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre the celebration sees hundreds of organisations get involved to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.
Activities taking place right across the UK
Hundreds of schools, youth groups, charities, companies, police forces, local and national government all get involved to support the day.
Together, we reached 25% of UK children, 18% of teens and 10% of parents on Safer Internet Day 2014 – an incredible achievement for a one-day campaign – and this year we’re hoping it’s going to be even bigger!
Organisations are invited to join the supporters list to share what they are doing for Safer Internet Day.
The UK Safer Internet Centre website has ideas for getting involved and resources to help you spread the word.
The UK Safer Internet Centre has created Education Packs for primary school children (3-11s), secondary school children (11-18s) and parents and carers.
The resources are designed to help schools, youth groups and other organisations to deliver activities for children, young people, parents and carers on Safer Internet Day 2015 on the 10th February.
The education packs include posters, assembly presentations with scripts, drama activities, quick activities, full lesson plans and information for parents and carers.

Following from our phenomenal success of SID TV from 2014, watched by 100,000 people across 49 countries, we will again be producing an online TV programme.

SID TV 2015 will be an hour-long programme for young people, which we will show once during the day and again at 6 pm. We hope to fill it with fun, lots of great content and celebrities, so watch this space.
