About our SID activities
This year (2022), the Croatian Safer Internet Centre (SIC) is preparing educational packs for schools and organisations that are planning to be involved in the celebration of Safer Internet Day (SID), just as we did in previous years. We are organising an online quiz for children and youth about online safety, and we are preparing valuable prizes for the most successful contestants. Also, we are planning to reward teachers and experts who show the most effort and creativity in making Safer Internet Day most memorable.
We will develop new checklists and flyers on topics that our experts have assessed to pose a risk to children and in which progress can be made with education.
We will organise the whole celebration in an online environment and we are preparing a public forum for children and youth with famous influencers from Croatia and experts in the field of online safety.
Furthermore, we are preparing online webinars for experts about sexting, hate speech, sharenting, privacy, internet addiction and fake news. We are also preparing a podcast for parents to discuss these important topics.
What we are doing to support the SID 2022 slogan of "Together for a better internet"…
We are trying to educate children, parents, youth and educators through lectures and workshops, and provide information on safer internet use of social networks as they are the prominent source for internet use in Croatia. We are helping children and youth to realise that their actions online have real consequences, and alerting parents and educators about how to teach themselves on some technical aspects of each of the social networks. We are going to reach as many people as possible in Croatia so that news and information about safer internet use becomes widely available.
The Croatian Safer Internet Centre (SIC) exists to promote a safer and better use of the internet and mobile technologies among children and young people.
