Safer Internet Day is less than a month away!

6 February 2018 is a big day for internet users worldwide! Organised by the joint Insafe-INHOPE network, with the support of the European Commission, we would like to invite you to help us spread the word about the 15th consecutive edition of the landmark Safer Internet Day (SID) campaign.

As was the case in previous years, SID 2018 will be celebrated on the second day of the second week of February in over 130 countries across the globe. Among our biggest supporters are companies such as Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Twitter and many more!

This year's theme "Create, connect and share respect: A better internet starts with you!" is a call to action for each and every one of us to play our part in making the internet a better place for all, and in particular the youngest users out there. In the context of increasingly virulent hate speech and online abuse, it's more important than ever to stress the importance of engaging with others in a respectful manner, whether online or off!

As the campaign ramps up in January, stay updated by regularly checking the campaign website at www.saferinternetday.org, or by following the social media profiles on Facebook and Twitter using the campaign hashtags #SID2018 and #SaferInternetDay.

And, to help reach as many people as possible, we'd also like to invite you to support the Thunderclap campaign to kick off Safer Internet Day 2018 with a bang… because a better internet starts with you!
