SWGfL were delighted to present our 2022 Online Safety Day supported by Meta.  This year, the event took place on Wednesday 16th November from 1pm - 3pm. Recognising our changing work environment, the event was a hybrid event with options to join online as well as in person at Meta offices in Euston.

This was our third annual event with Meta and looked to explore what the future may hold for online safety and safeguarding. With ongoing news surrounding the immersive technology and the future of the internet, this event gave professionals an introduction to the Metaverse.  

The event also covered exciting new developments from SWGfL, including the new reporting platform, Minerva as well as updates from our helplines around reporting harmful content and professional online safety advice. Our expert panel of speakers discussed the latest research around online safety as well as what tools and services can support you for the school year.
