Safer Internet Day 2019 in Italy: no to cyberbullying

For Safer Internet Day (SID) 2019, the Italian Safer Internet Centre (SIC) organised a large event which took place at the MiCo Congress Centre in Milan. Five hundred students came from schools all across the country to say no to bullying and cyberbullying.

For the occasion, the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Family Affairs joined forces and signed a new deal to empower young people to make a better use of the internet, and to recognise potential signs of danger. The two ministries have launched an awareness-raising video campaign against cyberbullying.

Along with the institutions, many high profile Italian YouTubers and Creators took part in the event, to demonstrate the positive use of the internet. The Italian SIC engaged students and teachers by facilitating constructive dialogue through an online survey, and its experts answered questions, helping students to learn how to be safe online. Watch a short recap of the day below.
