Safer Internet Day – Together for a better internet

Safer Internet Day

5 February, 2019 –

Safer Internet Day is an annual worldwide event to help encourage better and safer behaviour online.

There no one thing that would make the internet safe for everyone. We have to work together and focus on the four Rs to help make sure that everyone can use the internet safely – Respect, Responsibility, Reasoning and Resilience.

  • Respect is treating others the way we’d like to be treated;
  • Responsibility is being accountable for your actions and taking a stand when you feel something is wrong;
  • Reasoning is questioning what is real; and
  • Resilience is getting back up from tough situations.

The Palaszczuk Government is taking a nation-leading approach to cyber bullying, which is a key issue when it comes to internet safety.

We are investing $3.5 million to protect young Queenslanders and implement the recommendations from the Queensland Anti-Cyberbullying Taskforce.

This includes $2 million over two years to develop and roll-out community awareness and education campaigns.
