About our SID activities
This year, the Croatian Safer Internet Centre (SIC) is preparing educational packs for schools and organisations who are planning to be involved in the celebration of Safer Internet Day (SID), just as we did in previous years. We are going to organise 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 are also preparing Fairy Tales in the digital environment for parents to provide them with innovative tools for discussing online safety with their children. We will develop new checklists and flyers about social networks.
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 workshops for experts.
What we are doing to support the SID 2021 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) was established in 2015 and this is the sixth year we will be organising the Safer Internet Day (SID) celebration day. This year our project team has been expanded and we are glad to be able to include experts from different regions in Croatia and ensure impact on a national level.
