The theme chosen for this year is is ‘Online rights and responsibilities’, encouraging users to ‘Connect with respect’ and Tuesday 5th February has been chosen as the official commemoration day.
‘Over the years, Safer Internet Day (SID) has become a landmark event in the online safety calendar. Starting as an initiative of the EU SafeBorders project in 2004 and taken up by the Insafe network as one of its earliest actions in 2005, Safer Internet Day has grown beyond its traditional geographic zone and is now celebrated in more than 90 countries worldwide, and across six of the world’s seven continents and now at ICE Malta. Apart from encouraging individuals to continue to invest in ICT knowledge we are proud to be able to share the official Safer Internet Day message across the islands and also encourage other institutes to share this very essential communication with their students’ Nikolai Sammut, ICE Malta’s principal explains
