Safer Internet Day – What’s it all about?

What is Safer Internet Day, we hear you ask? Well, every year, on the second day of the second week of the second month, people all around the world get together to discuss how to make sure that the internet is a safe place where you can learn, have fun, connect with others, be creative and most importantly of all…be yourself! Which is why the main theme is… …drumroll… FREE TO BE ME! Because being yourself is pretty cool!  When you’re online, do you feel… Free to be creative… …and experiment with how to represent yourself in any way you like, whether it’s almost like your real self…or a completely different version? Free to be different… …and express the things that make you special or unique? Free to feel safe… …by keeping your personal information safe online, even when you are expressing yourself? Free to expect respect… …and take positive action if someone is treating you or your friends unkindly online, or not respecting you for who you are? Free to ask for help… …and let trusted adults know if you feel worried, upset or confused about anything that you see online? #SaferInternetDay2020 #FreeToBeMe
