Greek Safer Internet Centre
About our SID activities
For Safer Internet Day (SID) 2020, emphasis will be placed on the influence of social networks on adolescent's body image and on the protection of personal data and digital identity. A central event at the Ministry of Education will bring together about 900 students, teachers, authorities and stakeholders of online safety to celebrate Safer Internet Day 2020. At the same time, the Greek Safer Internet Centre (SIC) will provide material to schools of all levels of education across the country to organise their own event. The winners of the Pan-Hellenic student competitions held last year under the auspices of the Ministry will be announced during the event. In addition, the results of the new survey of 600 schools across Greece will be announced with questions mainly focused on children's online gaming habits and social media use.
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 2020 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.
