Together for a better internet

On Tuesday, 9 February 2021, we celebrated the 18th edition of Safer Internet Day 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. Download the public report to discover more about actions and successes from the day.

Also, 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, noting the global reach of the Safer Internet Day campaign, on this site you can also 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.

Much of the day's activity played out on social media. Be sure to check our Facebook and Twitter profiles, and review the #SaferInternetDay and #SID2021 hashtags to see the discussions that took place.

And, as one Safer Internet Day draws to a close, so we start planning the next. Join us for the next edition of Safer Internet Day on Tuesday, 8 February 2022.

Safer Internet Day 2021 in Belgium: act together for a better internet

Safer Internet Day, the worldwide day for a better internet, was back for its 18th edition. Turning the internet into a fun, fulfilling and safe space is more than ever a priority during this public health crisis, where children massively use screens for social contacts. An intergenerational dialogue is even more essential, as more than 60 per cent of children use the internet for more than four hours a day in Belgium. How can we facilitate this dialogue and promote a responsible and creative use of social media?
