About our SID activities
For Safer Internet Day (SID) 2021, emphasis will be placed on the changes that COVID-19 has brought to kid's digital life. There will be an online event in cooperation with the Panhellenic School network and the goal is that it be attended by as many schools is possible across the country. At the same time, the Greek Safer Internet Centre (SIC) 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.
All activities in Greece will be dedicated to Safer Internet Day (SID) during the SID month. Lots of school trainings and parents evenings will also promote the day.
What we are doing to support the SID 2021 slogan of "Together for a better internet"…
Through the contest, students collaborate with each other and their educators in order to create material that promotes the idea of a better internet. The material created by young people can be used for the education of smaller children. The SID event attracts great interest on social media and this helps to spread the message of SID to every corner of Greece. SaferInternet4Kids.gr aims at strengthening children and young people to benefit from the online world with its multiple possibilities and empower them to become responsible cyber citizens.
The Greek Safer Internet Centre (SIC) promotes a safer and better use of the internet and social media among children and young people. It develops tools and material to appropriately inform and educate parents, grandparents, guardians, teachers, and other sensitive groups of society of the role they ought to play in raising the new generation of children in the digital world.
SaferInternet4Kids.gr is supported by the Greek Ministry of Education.
