Organised by the joint Insafe-INHOPE network, with the support of the European Commission the landmark Safer Internet Day (SID) campaign will be celebrated on the second day of the second week of February in over 130 countries across the globe.

This year's theme "Create, connect and share respect: A better internet starts with you!" is a call to action for each and every one of us to play our part in making the internet a better place for all, and in particular the youngest users out there. In the context of increasingly virulent hate speech and online abuse, it's more important than ever to stress the importance of engaging with others in a respectful manner, whether online or off!
