Join the Movement: Support Safer Internet Day 2024
As we embrace the digital era, the importance of online safety continues to grow, touching every corner of our lives. That’s why the office of eSafety Australia is championing an essential cause that aligns perfectly with our values at ASCCA: Safer Internet Day, set for Tuesday, 6 February 2024. This initiative is more than just a day; it’s a call to action for each of us to play our part in creating a safer online world.
Why Safer Internet Day Matters
In an age where the internet is a gateway to endless possibilities, it’s vital to remember that it also poses unique challenges, especially for our senior community. Safer Internet Day provides us with an opportunity to learn, share, and collaborate on the best ways to navigate these challenges. Whether it’s understanding privacy settings, recognising online scams, or simply learning how to connect safely with loved ones, this day is about empowering everyone to use the internet confidently and securely.
