Ukraine Safer Internet Day Committee

About our SID activities

Our goal is to unite efforts of all stakeholders to inform children, young people, teachers, youth workers, parents and caregivers about online safety, to discuss threats that could harm people, to identify ways to prevent negative impact of the internet, to share respectful behaviour online, best practices of online participation.
 
We deliver our activities to young people through non-formal education methods and children/youth participation in schools, clubs and youth associations.
 
Most of the SID activities are planned in the educational institutions, libraries, youth clubs and centres.
 
From 5 February 2020 till 25 February 2020, Cisco Academy, in cooperation with Department of the Cyber Police of Ukraine, invite children and youngsters to participate in the all-Ukrainian online lesson on cybersecurity (registration by the link: http://cs.co/SID2020)
 
On 11 February 2020, Google Ukraine plan to organise an event for representatives of the educational sphere, public organisations, foreign missions to Ukraine, state officials, as well as for academics. All-Ukrainian open lesson Digital Homeroom will be a part of the event.

The activities of SID 2020 will be conducted with a traditional support by the Institute of Modernisation of Educational Content of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine.
 
On the country level, in addition to the hashtags #SID2020 and #SaferInternetDay2020, we will use a Ukrainian version #ДеньБезпечногоІнтернету2020.
 
We plan to use the Open Badges system for participants of activities of SID 2020 in Ukraine. Due to the Open Badges system, SID 2020 in Ukraine can become more visible and recognisable among different stakeholders.
 

What we are doing to support the SID 2020 slogan of "Together for a better internet"…

We see our role in helping children and young people to be an active part of positive changes in the digital age. We show those sides and opportunities of the internet which lead to personal self-development and self-realisation.

About us

In 2017, inspired by our five years of work as Safer Internet Day National Committee and the possibility to take part in the creation of the safer internet for all, we established an NGO: "Better Internet Centre". We are working on translation and adaptation of research, UNICEF, Council of Europe reports, and Insafe materials making them more accessible for everybody in each part of Ukraine: from rural areas to big cities.
 
We develop new tools on online safety for education.
 
We advocate child rights online across Ukraine.
