People are relying on the internet more than ever before which makes staying safe online very important. That’s why we’re inviting people to become a Safer Internet Day supporter again on 9 February 2021. Read more details about Safer Internet Day below or sign-up here.

What is Safer Internet Day?

Safer Internet Day is an international event aimed at encouraging and promoting a better online experience celebrated by more than 50 nations. Netsafe is the official organising committee in New Zealand and we’re inviting organisations, schools and individuals to join us and help spread the day’s messages.

Netsafe started coordinating Safer Internet Day back in 2014 and in 2020 we saw a record number of supporters joining together to help people have a more positive time online.

What do you need to do to support Safer Internet Day?

Partners in 2020 included Netflix, Facebook, Google, Twitter, Noel Leeming, Countdown,
Youthline, Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand and many more government agencies,
schools and non-government organisations.

Netsafe will provide you with resources ahead of Safer Internet Day and you can choose how to best promote the milestone. It could be a social media post, an event talking about online safety or even distributing Netsafe’s results.

Our resources provide advice and information about keeping safe online, including:

  • Social media assets
  • Online safety tips and supporting imagery to promote the day via organisational newsletters
  • Digital banners and badges
  • Printable posters

If you’d like to be a Safer Internet Day supporter in 2021, please email [email protected].

How do you become a Safer Internet Day supporter?

By becoming a supporter you’re helping us connect people in Aotearoa with the information they need to keep them and their whānau safe. If you’re keen to join us, just email a PNG copy of your logo to [email protected].

We’ll include your logo as an official supporter on the Safer Internet Day NZ website and provide you with resources and support to help you celebrate the day.

Anything you can do to spread the word helps and we’d love to have you join us.
