1. It takes place on Tuesday 5 February 2019.

 

2. This year’s theme is Together for a better internet.

 

3. In the UK, SID2019 focuses on how consent works in an online context, exploring how young people ask for, give and receive consent in online friendships, image sharing and managing their privacy.

 

4. SID aims to inspire a national conversation about using technology responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively.

 

 

5.  It is co-ordinated by the UK Safer Internet Centre, a partnership of three leading charities: Childnet International, Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) and the South West Grid for Learning (SWGfL).
