5 February is #SaferInternetDay in Ireland and across the EU.



The internet and social media have become an integral part of our lives and how we communicate. Our youth are increasingly connected to the online world and have access to a wealth of opportunities in education, enrichment, and entertainment. However, this interconnectivity increasingly allows for online abuse and cybercrime.

The internet should be safe and open for everyone, and we must work to promote a healthy internet environment for our youth, being sure to speak with children and teens about online safety and boundaries.

Together we can work toward a safer internet for all.
