Information about Safer Internet Day

What is Safer Internet Day?

"Together for a better Internet " - this is the motto under which many people and institutions around the world campaign every February on Safer Internet Day to improve online safety. Children and young people in particular are to be supported in their self-determined and responsible use of digital media.

There are many starting points: respectful interaction with one another, the promotion of media skills, the creation of an appropriate legal framework and the provision of high-quality services for children and young people.

Accordingly, a wide range of institutions, companies and private individuals are taking part in Safer Internet Day: schools, kindergartens, public institutions and political bodies, as well as parents, children and young people - everyone can contribute to better interaction in the digital space.
