Safer Internet Day (SID) is celebrated in February each year to promote the safe and responsible use of online technology and mobile phones for children and young people across the world. This year, South Africa joins over 100 countries on 6 continents in highlighting the creative things we all do online, as well as the responsibility we all have in helping to create a better internet. We therefore invite everyone to engage in online activities as part of SA’s own Internet Safety Campaign (ISC).
Our activities include a chance to quiz yourself on making good decisions online, voting on a teen poll that helps us understand teens experiences or a parent poll that helps us understand parents needs. To get started, pledge your support of Internet Safety in SA by signing the ISC Honour Code which is the undertaking by all Internet users to commit to “working together to ensure a safe online environment for all”.
The statement below outlines the commitments and key principles that each individual will follow as a supporter of Internet Safety.
