ConnectSafely is proud to be the official US host of Safer Internet Day, a global event celebrated in more than 100 countries, this year on Tuesday, February 9. Here are a few ways you, your classroom, your home or your organization can join us and people across the globe to send the message that making the internet great for everybody takes everybody.
"The internet starts with I & ends with T"
This year, our U.S. theme is “The internet starts with I & ends with T" — asking everyone to think about “What I can do to make the internet better.” And while we can take personal responsibility for our own actions, we can also work together. “Internet ends with T” reminds us that we’re all in this together. That includes families, companies, governments and everyone else. We all have a role to play.
Here are a few key ways to celebrate Safer Internet Day in your community or home. See the full list at SID-USA.org.
