Swedish Safer Internet Day Supporter - Statens Medierad

Last updated: 2022-01-27

About our SID activities

On Safer Internet Day (SID) 2022, we aim to publish a debate article in one of Sweden's biggest newspapers about the online safety of children, as well as participate in a morning show on TV discussing this topic. During the whole week of SID, we will post information and educational material related to the SID theme on our social media. We will also release brand new guides on copyright online.

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

The Swedish Media Council produces information and pedagogical material to be used by parents, educators and people who meet children and young people in their profession. The Media Council also publishes reports and other material on developments in the media, media effects, and the media situation of children and young people.
 
Together with the children's rights organisation Bris, The Media Council forms a Swedish “Safer Internet Centre" with a mission to make the internet a better place for children and young people.

The Media Council gathers relevant research and disseminates information on media development, media effects and media use regarding children and young people.
 
The Council also classifies films for public screening. The ratings reflect whether the films are liable to harm the well-being of children.
