Safer Internet Day 2018

Create, connect and share respect: A better internet starts with you.

About Safer Internet Day

Safer Internet Day (SID) is an annual, worldwide event held on Tuesday 6 February 2018 to help encourage a better internet, with this year’s theme ‘Create, connect and share respect: A better internet starts with you’.

Celebrated globally in 130 countries, Safer Internet Day is coordinated by the joint Insafe/INHOPE network, with the support of the European Commission, and national Safer Internet Centres across Europe.

Our role in SID2018

The Office of the eSafety Commissioner is the official Committee for Safer Internet Day in Australia—responsible for driving the initiative nationally.

The Office is focussing its local efforts on the respect element of the SID2018 theme, running a number of activities and events for individuals and organisations to participate in. Find out how you can get involved and help the Office reach all Australians—young and older—with important SID messages and advice.
