Safer Internet Day (SID) is a worldwide event which raises awareness about internet safety and empowers individuals and communities with tools for more positive online experiences.
Taking place on 5 February 2019, Safer Internet Day has gained global momentum, with more than 130 countries set to celebrate in 2019.
The Office of the eSafety Commissioner is the official Committee responsible for managing and promoting Safer Internet Day in Australia.
In the spirit of Australia’s 2019 theme ‘Together for a better internet’, we are encouraging all Australians to collaborate with their communities and support each other in developing the critical skills required for navigating the online world.
These skills take time to develop but they can help us in all areas of life- online and off. We like to call them the 4Rs…Respect : I treat myself and others the way I like to be treated
Responsibility : I am accountable for my actions
Reasoning : I question what is real
Resilience : I get back up from tough situations
