Today is #SaferInternetDay

Last updated by on Friday, March 27, 2020

It's Safer Internet Day today and we're getting involved on social media @EssexSafeguards supporting the #freetobe campaign which is aiming to explore whether young people feel free to be themselves online, looking at how young people manage their online identity, and how the internet shapes how they think of themselves and others.


Does the internet allow young people to express themselves, or do they feel limited in who they can be online?


By opening up conversations around online identity, the aim is to inspire young people to support each other in being who they want to be. Safer Internet Day 2020 will celebrate difference and help work towards creating a truly inclusive internet.
