InSafe Newsletter

The 11th edition of Safer Internet Day (SID) took place on 11 February 2014. With a theme of 'Let's create a better internet together', SID 2014 was the biggest celebration of a safer - and better - internet yet.

In this edition of the InSafe Newsletter, just a few of the Insafe Safer Internet Centres share their SID success stories, outlining some of the innovative awareness-raising campaigns, events and resources that have once again helped to make Safer Internet Day such a memorable event. And as Safer Internet Day is now a truly global celebration, we hear from a little further afield too with an update from our Safer Internet Day Committees in Afghanistan and India, and from just a few of the many schools that took part.
