Brazil Safer Internet Day Committee - SaferNet Brazil

Last updated: 2022-01-17

About our SID activities

Considering the still very critical pandemic context, we will have a hybrid format for Safer Internet Day (SID) 2022 and count on international participation to discuss key takeaways for youths, children and educators. We choose to focus on the issue of well-being, youth participation and the educator's role in the digital age, working on some challenges on promoting positive use of digital technologies during the COVID outbreak. The objective is to strengthen a multistakeholder nationwide effort to promote a safer and healthier digital environment in Brazil.
 
Planned activities include a hybrid multisectoral HUB event with international speakers to discuss digital youth participation and well-being; II Youth Summit to discuss the future of digital citizenship; new material launch events with educational resources and workshops about journalist safety; remote educational events at schools and NGOs; and more to come.
 

What we are doing to support the SID 2022 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 five themes in a very lively and fun language, inviting users to review their digital habits. Videos are directed by SaferNet Brasil with support from Meta. Available with subtitles in English.

About us

SaferNet is the first-ever NGO in Brazil to establish a multistakeholder approach to protect human rights in the digital environment. It created and has coordinated since 2005 the National Human Rights Cybertipline, the National Helpline and the Brazilian awareness node, and has more than 15 years of experience in capacity building programmes with educators, young people, legislators, policy makers and social workers. It is leading the debate on online safety and security in many national and international fora. In 2013, it launched the Youth Program during the Brazilian IGF (Internet Governance Forum). In 2015, during the IGF in Joao Pessoa, the Youth Program was expanded under the auspices of the Internet Society (ISOC) and the Brazilian Internet Steering Committee (CGI.br), in a partnership with Google and Intel. SaferNet has formal signed agreements with the Ministry of Human Rights, General Prosecutor's Office and many companies in the private sector.
