Together for a better internet

On Tuesday, 8 February 2022 we celebrated the 19th edition of Safer Internet Day (SID) with actions taking place right across the globe. With a theme once again of "Together for a better internet", the day called upon all stakeholders to join together to make the internet a safer and better place for all, and especially for children and young people.

Noting the global reach of the Safer Internet Day campaign, on this site you can discover more about the actions of European Safer Internet Centres, global Safer Internet Day Committees and a range of organisational and industry supporters to mark the day. And even though SID has passed for another year, the efforts of stakeholders don't stop; we'll continue to update profile pages with SID success stories in the coming weeks.

Much of the day's activity played out on social media. Be sure to check our Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and TikTok profiles, and review the #SaferInternetDay and #SID2022 hashtags to see the discussions which took place. You can also read the public campaign report.

Read on to find out more about practical ways in which you can get involved in the campaign, not just on Safer Internet Day but all year around. Whether you are a young person, a parent or carer, a teacher or an educator, a policy maker, or whether you represent an organisation or industry, everyone has a role to play in creating and maintaining a better online world.

And as one SID draws to a close, we already start planning the next. Save the date for Safer Internet Day 2023 which will take place on Tuesday, 7 February 2023.
