Safer Internet Day – 9th February 2021
Safer Internet Day is the 9th February 2021 and this year will be celebrated in the UK with the theme: An internet we trust: exploring reliability in the online world.
Safer Internet Day 2021 celebrates the amazing range of information and opportunities online, and its potential to inform, connect and inspire us, whilst also looking at how we can separate fact from fiction.
To celebrate and support this important campaign, the WSCC Community Safety & Wellbeing Team are hosting a number of FREE webinars for professionals and parents & carers. The webinars will explore some of the key factors to be aware of regarding the online space and exploitation of children & young people. There will be a key focus on the topics of trust online, fake news, conspiracy theories & radicalisation.
Parent/Carer Tuesday 9th February – 13:00-14:30 & Friday 12th February – 13:00-14:30
Professionals Tuesday 9th February – 10:00-12:00 & Thursday 11th February – 10:00-12:00
