Safer Internet Day 2022: All fun and games? Exploring respect and relationships online

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, and to inspire a national conversation about using technology responsibly, respectfully, critically, and creatively. 

Safer Internet Day 2022 took place on 8 February 2022 and celebrated young people's role in creating a safer internet, whether while gaming and creating content, or interacting with their friends and peers. Online communities and relationships are very important to young people and have only become more important over the last few years. From gaming and chat to streaming and video, young people are shaping interactive entertainment spaces they are a part of. 

UK Safer Internet Centre has produced an impact report to highlight just how far Safer Internet Day 2022 reached. The report found that: 

  • 54% of children in the UK aged 8-17 heard about Safer Internet Day 2022
  • 90% of teachers say that Safer Internet Day plays a significant role in their school’s online safety provision
  • 91% said the day helped make pupils more confident about staying safe online 
  • 41% of teachers said the day led to disclosures about potential safeguarding issues online

You can read the full report here to get a complete picture of the impact of the day.

All of the resources created for Safer Internet Day 2022 are still available for use, including free education packs (for age groups ranging from age three to 18) which have already been downloaded over 125,000 times. The packs (available in both English and Welsh) include assembly presentations, lesson plans and videos. 

You can also access the research that UK Safer Internet Centre published on the day, which looks into young people’s and their parents’ experiences of online games, as well as read the Young People’s Charter which contains a set of changes that young people would like to see made
