Children and young people

Can help to create a better internet by being kind and respectful to others online, by protecting their online reputations (and those of others), and by seeking out positive opportunities to create, engage and share online.

Parents and carers

Play a crucial role in empowering and supporting children to use technology responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively, whether it is by
ensuring an open dialogue with their children, educating them to use technology safely and positively, or by acting as digital role models.

Teachers, educators and social workers

Can help to create a better internet by equipping their pupils and students with digital literacy skills and by developing their critical thinking skills, which will allow them to better navigate the online world.
They can empower them to create their own content, make considered choices online, and can set a personal example of positive online behaviour for their pupils and students.

Industry

Can help to create a better internet by creating and promoting positive
content and safe services online, and by empowering users to respond to any issues by providing clear safety advice, a range of easy-to-use safety tools, and quick access to support if things do go wrong.

Decision makers and politicians

Need to provide a culture in which all of the above  can function and thrive – for example, by ensuring that there are opportunities in the curriculum for children and young people to learn about online safety, ensuring that parents and carers have access to appropriate information and sources of support, and that industry is encouraged to self-regulate its content and services. 
They must also take the lead in governance and legislation, and ultimately ensure  the safety and wellbeing of children and young people through effective child protection strategies for the digital world.

Everyone

Has a responsibility to make a positive difference online. We can all
promote the positive by being kind and respectful to others and by seeking out positive opportunities to create and connect. We can all respond to the negative by reporting inappropriate or illegal content and behaviour online. 
Safer Internet Day encourages everyone to come together and play their part.

There are many ways to do this:
  • Children and young people

  • Parents and carers

  • Teachers, educators and social workers

  • Industry

  • Decision makers and politicians

  • Everyone

Safer Internet Day 2020 will be celebrated globally with the theme: Together for a better internet.
