Safer Internet Day

The aim of Safer Internet Day is to inspire a UK wide conversation about using technology responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively.

Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre the celebration sees hundreds of organisations get involved to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.

The UK Safer Internet Centre is a partnership of three leading charities – Childnet International, Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) and the South West Grid for Learning (SWGfL) - with a shared mission to make the internet a better place for children and young people. Globally, Safer Internet Day is celebrated in over a hundred countries, coordinated by the joint Insafe/INHOPE network, with the support of the European Commission, and national Safer Internet Centres across Europe.

Safer Internet Day: Tuesday 8 February 2022

Global theme - Together for a better internet

The Welsh Government is working with the UK Safer Internet Centre to plan an exciting and timely campaign to celebrate Safer Internet Day 2022. This is a great opportunity for children and young people, school staff, parents and carers and businesses in Wales to get involved in a truly global campaign.

Here is everything you need to get involved with Safer Internet Day at your school, youth setting or workplace.

UK theme - All fun and games? Exploring respect and relationships online

This year we are celebrating young people’s role in creating a safer internet and the ways they are shaping the interactive entertainment spaces they are a part of. The platforms young people use are spaces for connection, community and collaboration, which is why Safer Internet Day challenges them to foster supportive relationships and respectful communities, whilst equipping them with the skills they need to keep themselves and others safe in these spaces.


The Welsh Government has organised a film competition in support of Safer Internet Day 2022 and is calling on children and young people in Wales to take part.

The competition aims to encourage children and young people to express their creativity and share their understanding of showing respect online.

The competition is now open and will close on 20 December 2021.

For all the details and entry form, please visit our competition page.
