The Insafe network is pleased to announce that the theme for the 10th Safer Internet Day will be online rights and responsibilities.
The campaign will take place worldwide on Tuesday 5 February 2013.
As in previous years, members of the public, schools, NGOs, industry and other stakeholders are all invited to take part.
About Online Rights and Responsibilities
The Insafe Network is currently preparing the campaign information for SID 2013. We can, however, confirm that the slogan will be 'connect with respect'.
As soon as more information is available it will be added to this page.
Want to know how to take part in SID?
You can spread the word by attending or organizing an event! You can register for Safer Internet Day by completing the online form. There are three types of registrations available: for schools, for individuals, and for organisations.
All registered schools will also receive a digital copy of the SID Kit for schools once it becomes available.
Once you've registered Insafe will contact you; if you reside in one of our network countries, this contact will be from your National Awareness Center.
No national contact point? They why not set up a SID Committee in your country! Contact the SID helpdesk at SIDemail@example.com to create your own.
Now you're ready to organize your event. You can use the resources on their SID page to help you.

- Follow our Facebook and Twitter campaign pages, or view SID videos past and present on our YouTube accounts (Insafe / Pan-EU Youth)
- Spread the word through the media.
- Host an event such as a conference on online safety in your community.
- Arrange workshops in schools and private companies.
- Orchestrate debates between young people and policy-makers.
Valentine’s Day isn't the only holiday worth celebrating this February. As you may or may not be aware, today is Safer Internet Day and it’s an occasion aimed at informing Internet users just how much personal information they reveal online.
With the rapid increase in social networks, from Facebook to Twitter and MySpace, there has never been a better time for a reminder in making smarter online choices. While some of us might already be selective in the friends we accept into our social networks, we shouldn't forget that some things are better left private. After all, you don’t share your secrets with everyone, right?
This such a fantastic way of sharing your abilities and knowledge of security issues and problems in your area to help other and give back, you'll receive them back via other participants!
More and more articles are warning students and community leaders alike that what you put on the Web, stays on the Web.
