About our SID activities
Slovenia's main SID event will take place on Tuesday, 11 February 2020. Our plan is to prepare an educational seminar for professionals working in kindergartens.
For SID 2020 we will continue with our tradition of extending Safer Internet Day into Safer Internet Month offering schools in Slovenia the chance to register to take part in SID celebrations. Upon registration, teachers and schools will receive a toolkit with classroom activities and a badge to put on their school website announcing them as SID celebrators.
It is also expected to prepare and launch different online and offline materials targeting mainly pre-school children under the age of 6 and their parents/teachers.
Besides this we will launch different Facebook/Twitter/Instagram/Snapchat campaigns, encouraging our fans and followers to be actively involved in discussions and exchange of their views and opinions.
In addition to this, a number of trainings for parents/teachers and workshops for pupils will be carried out.
What we are doing to support the SID 2020 slogan of "Together for a better internet"…
The Slovenian Safer Internet Centre (SIC) makes great efforts to reach as many schools from different Slovenian regions and include them in as many different activities as possible. We organise face-to-face workshops and seminars for pupils and students as well as their parents. We regularly organise competitions for schools and all schools receive an invitation to join the competition.
Each year, all Slovenian schools are also invited to join SID celebrations and, upon registering, each school receives an online SID toolkit with different activities and resources for celebrating SID.
In addition to this, over the last few years, the SIC has been continuously successful in generating press and media coverage. The SIC has been able to keep strong connections with the media and therefore has ensured a certain continuity in releases of awareness–raising information. The national Safer Internet Centre is a reference point which journalists turn to whenever preparing an article/story about internet safety and online problems that children and youth face.
Safer Internet Centre (SIC) Slovenia is the national project promoting and ensuring a better internet for kids. The project is co-financed by the European Union's Connecting Europe Facility (CEF), and financial support also comes from the Ministry of Public Administration. The project is run by a consortium of partners coordinated by the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Ljubljana, Academic and Research Network of Slovenia (Arnes), Slovenian Association of Friends of Youth (ZPMS) and Youth Information and Counselling Center of Slovenia (MISSS).
