Create, connect and share respect – Safer Internet Day 2019

Safer Internet Day 2019

On Tuesday, 5 February 2019 we are celebrating Safer Internet Day!

Safer Internet Day is an opportunity to raise awareness about the safe and positive use of digital technology, and to explore the role we can all play in creating a better and safer internet in
our community.

Coordinated by the Office of the eSafety Commissioner in Australia and celebrated in over 130 countries, this year’s Safer Internet Day theme is: ‘Together for a better internet’.

We are encouraging all Australians to collaborate with their communities and support each other in developing the critical skills required to successfully navigate the online world.

These skills take time to develop but they can help us in all areas of life — online and off. We like
to call them the 4Rs…

  • Respect – I treat myself and others the way I like to be treated
  • Responsibility – I am accountable for my actions and I take a stand when I feel something is wrong
  • Reasoning – I question what is real
  • Resilience – I get back up from tough situations

CyberGuru is supporting Safer Internet Day by posting on blog articles about cyber safety and security and we encourage you to join in!

Help spread the word and raise awareness about the importance of a safer and more positive internet — you can participate in, run your own Safer Internet Day activity or simply start
a conversation in your community about the 4Rs and how you can come ‘Together for a better internet’.
