About our SID activities
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we would like to take this opportunity to have special international participation to discuss the post-COVID digital world and the key takeaways for parents, children and educators. We choose to focus on the issue of parenting, well-being and the educators role in the digital age, working on some challenges on promoting a positive use of digital technologies during the COVID outbreak. The objective is to strengthening a multistakeholder nationwide effort to promote a safer and healthier digital environment in Brazil.
Planned activities include a multisectoral HUB event with international speakers to discuss digital parenting and well-being; SID Youth Summit; Internet and Information Security Technical community; new material launch events with educational comics, film and debate; remote educational events at schools and NGOs; and more to come.
What we are doing to support the SID 2021 slogan of "Together for a better internet"…
In this context of intensifying online presence, increasing the resilience of stakeholders and improving alternatives for a more positive, healthy and balanced digital experience is decisive for the well-being of each of us.
Please see additional resources below for videos produced by young people from the Digital Citizen program for use in remote activities with schools across the country. Initially with four themes worked in a very lively and fun way, inviting users to review their digital habits. The videos are directed by SaferNet Brasil with support from Facebook.
