This year's Safer Internet Day celebrations take place on Tuesday, 5 February 2019. Follow the #SID2019 and #SaferInternetDay hashtags.

The campaign's slogan, "Together for a better internet", is a call to action for everyone to join together and play their part in creating a better internet for everyone, and especially for younger users.

It's up to all of us to create and shape the on-line spaces that we like to spend our time in. Stand-up to cyberbullying by visiting our site watchyourspace.ie."
