About our SID activities

Safer Internet Day (SID) is a special occasion for the Greek Safer Internet Centre (SIC), SaferInternet4Kids.gr, to promote a more responsible use of digital media and invite the public to reflect on their knowledge and actions when it comes to online safety.

This year, we decided to expand the celebration of SID with events through the whole second week of February. Some days before SID, we will organise a press conference regarding the results of our survey on the topic “Block and report is strength” that was conducted among adolescents (10 to 17 years) in Greece.

Furthermore, on 8 February, in cooperation with educators all over the country, we will organise a hidden treasure game with puzzles related to the safe use of the internet and modified in such a way so that it will comply with the health rules imposed on schools for protection against COVID-19.

At the same time, the Greek Safer Internet Centre will provide material to schools of all levels of education to organise their own event. The winners of the Pan-Hellenic student competitions held under the auspices of the Ministry will be announced during the online event

What we are doing to support the SID 2022 slogan of "Together for a better internet"…

During the whole week, the centre will organise training courses and events for students, educators and parents in order to promote safe and efficient use of the internet, and spread the message that together we can create a better internet for everyone.

Furthermore, through the contest, students collaborate with each other and their educators in order to create material that promotes the idea of a better internet.
