Slovenian Safer Internet Centre

About our SID activities

In 2023, on Safer Internet Day (SID), we are drawing attention to aspects of the internet where children are exposed to harmful content (such as online pornography) and are encouraged to do things they are not mature enough to do. This can have negative impact on their development and have consequences in adulthood. In February 2023, a mix of different promotional and educational activities will be carried out to raise awareness of this very important issue. SID 2023 celebrations in Slovenia will again be supported by the national Ministry of Education, Science and Sport.
An interactive online talk show with experts on the impact of harmful online content on young people, focusing on the effects and problems of online pornography, will be held as one of the main events of SID in February 2023. A webinar for parents on the same topic will also take place in February 2023.
Various online and offline materials such as leaflets and posters will also be produced, published and disseminated. It is expected that the poster will be distributed to all Slovenian primary and secondary schools.

For SID 2023, we will continue our tradition and expand Safer Internet Day into Safer Internet Month. We are offering schools in Slovenia the opportunity to register to participate in the celebration of SID. After registering, teachers and schools will receive a toolkit with activities for the classroom and a badge to promote them as SID on their school website. One of the key activities included in the toolkit for schools is an online survey for students in the last triad in primary and secondary education (young people aged 12-19) which explores the impact of inappropriate online content (such as online pornography) and behaviours (sexting, sending and receiving inappropriate photos/videos) on their development.

We will also launch various Facebook/Twitter/Instagram campaigns encouraging our fans and followers to actively engage in discussions and share their views and opinions. We will also run a series of training sessions for parents/teachers and workshops for pupils and secondary school students.

What we are doing to support the SID 2023 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.

Every year, the Slovenian awareness centre encourages schools to prepare their own activities for Safer Internet Day (SID). To encourage participation effectively, we prepare a SID Toolkit each year, which includes lesson plans with activities for different age groups, decision trees, leaflets, videos and other interesting tools that can be used in the classroom. We also create a map of schools involved in SID to show that all regions of the country are covered.

What we are doing to mark the 20th anniversary of Safer Internet Day…

We will mark the 20th anniversary of Safer Internet Day on our social networking channels (Facebook/Twitter/Instagram).
