Safer Internet Day is a global event that brings together communities, families, schools and organisations from more than 200 countries to help create safer online spaces.
This worldwide initiative is celebrating 20 years in 2023, making it a great time to reflect as well as look forward.
Technology has evolved dramatically in the past two decades and the benefits have been huge. These developments have also exposed us to many risks with real-world impacts, making online safety awareness even more important.
That’s why we are calling on Australians to Connect. Reflect. Protect.
Connect safely and with purpose – by keeping apps and devices secure and using social media in positive ways.

Entries open 15th – 30th September 2023.
It’s a new year and that means it’s time for the highlights of the Consumer electronics Show (CES) in the US. Some of the items that caught my attention from a disability perspective could have great implications as the year goes on.
I hope that everyone has had a relaxing and stress-free time over the course of the last few months. I know that the festive season has been challenging for many communities around Australia with record breaking flooding at one extreme and some nasty bush fires at the other around the country. here in the Kimberley we have been cut off from Perth by road during the course of the once in a hundred year event at Fitzroy Crossing, knocking out Highway #1’s single lane bridge that connected us to the rest of our state (and connected the two halves of Fitzroy Crossing itself, when the river peaked at 15.8m).
