The 12th Safer Internet Day will be celebrated worldwide on Tuesday 10 February 2015The theme for the day is: “Let’s create a better internet together”. Once again, children and young people, parents and carers, teachers and educators, or industry and politicians – are invited to join together in marking the day and working together to build a better internet for all, but particularly children and young people.
NAPCAN encourages:
  • Children and young people to support their friends and share their knowledge about how social media can be used to help or harm friendships and relationships
  • Teachers and educators to partner with young people in informing their school or service’s social media policy; the use of the internet and technology in their education; and in designing supportive responses to relationship difficulties involving social media
  • Families, parents and carers to regularly ‘check-in’ with children and young people about social media and their relationships; making it more likely for them to later share any concerns. Young people are the experts in technology but adults still play a vital role in teaching the skills to have healthy and respectful friendships and relationships.
  • Industry and politicians to take the time to hear the voices, wisdom and vision that children and young people can offer to make the internet a safer and more fulfilling space to learn and build relationships.
