Safer Internet Day - create, connect and share respect

Thursday, 03 January 2019

Tuesday 5 February 2019 is Safer Internet Day.

Safer Internet Day is an opportunity to raise awareness about the safe and positive use of digital technology, and to explore the role we can all play in creating a better and safer internet in
our community. 

Coordinated by the Office of the eSafety Commissioner in Australia and celebrated in over 130 countries, this year’s Safer Internet Day theme is: ‘Together for a better internet’. 

All Australians are encouraged to collaborate with their communities and support each other in developing the critical skills required to successfully navigate the online world. These skills, known as the four Rs, take time to develop but they can help us in all areas of life – online and off:

  • Respect – I treat myself and others the way I like to be treated
  • Responsibility – I am accountable for my actions and I take a stand when I feel something is wrong
  • Reasoning – I question what is real
  • Resilience – I get back up from tough situations
