Netsafe organises a variety of events to enable people to confidently access digital opportunities and prevent online harm.
For more than 20 years, Netsafe has worked hard to create a safer more positive online experience for people. We’ve shared advice so that people feel empowered to take advantage of the opportunities offered by technology.
As the past year has only reinforced the importance of connectivity and because we’re seeing continuing to receive more requests from people needing help under the Harmful Digital Communication Act, we are hosting New Zealand’s first Netsafety Week to try to make a difference.
The inaugural Netsafety Week will take place between 26 and 30 July. There will be a variety of activities people can participate in. If you’re keen to be a supporter, you can find more details here.
Netsafe LIVE events
At Netsafe LIVE events, our Education Advisors talk about the risks, challenges and opportunities of digital tech, and the practical ways we can help young people to be safe online. There are sessions for school leaders, educators and parents. Netsafe LIVE sessions are run throughout the country, so check out when the next Netsafe LIVE event is being held or find out how you can host one.
Netsafe provides tailored presentations for schools, Communities of Learning, organisations and businesses, and community groups throughout New Zealand. Our presentations are developed in consultation with you, with your audience’s needs in mind, and are facilitated by one of our online safety experts. In addition to offering presentations, Netsafe can also facilitate online safety discussions, host workshops or provide consultation services.
Safer Internet Day
Safer Internet Day is celebrated globally in February each year to promote the safe and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.
This is an international event aimed at encouraging and promoting a better online experience celebrated by more than 50 nations. Netsafe started coordinating Safer Internet Day back in 2014 and will again take the coordination reigns in 2022.
Mostly this day is about encouraging people to have a more positive time. Some of our supporters include Netflix, Facebook, Google, Twitter, Noel Leeming, Countdown, Youthline, Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand and many more government agencies, schools and non-government organisations.
Stay tuned later in the year for more details about next year’s Safer Internet Day.
