Safer Internet Day is the UK Safer Internet Centre’s biggest event of the year and brings together thousands of young people, parents and organisations to celebrate staying safe online. This year alone, Safer Internet Day reached 50% of children aged 8-17 in the UK with 5,004 organisations signing up to support the initiative. While it doesn’t seem that long ago since Safer Internet Day 2023, the UK Safer Internet Centre has now released the theme for 2024.
Safer Internet Day 2024 Theme
Last week the UK Safer Internet Centre announced that the new SID theme will be ‘Inspiring change? Making a difference, managing influence and navigating change online’. For 2024, the UK Safer Internet Centre is looking to see ‘thousands of organisations get involved to promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.’ Taking place on Tuesday 6th February 2023, this Safer Internet Day is looking to encourage children and young people to shape the online safety support that they receive whilst exploring the following areas:
- Young people’s perspective on new and emerging technology
- Using the internet to make change for the better
- The changes young people want to see online
- The things that can influence and change the way young people think, feel and act online and offline
