On Tuesday, 8 February 2022, Safer Internet Day will take place for the 19th time. Under the main theme "Together for a better internet", there are various actions around the world. "Klicksafe", an initiative of the European Commission and German coordinator for SID 2022, has the motto "Fit for democracy, strong for society". Climate change, pandemics and radical right-wing and extremist movements are daily challenges for our democracy, which is why this year's focus is on the following questions: How do we make our democracy strong? How do we succeed in this test in everyday digital life? How can we understand diversity as wealth and strength? How can the fair and constructive exchange of different points of view be practised and trained?
To strengthen democratic competence, the EU initiative klicksafe creates space for discussions on numerous levels:
- In 2022, the klicksafe experts will publish new teaching materials on the topics of democracy promotion and media literacy. Projects and working materials for educational work will be available in advance as a compact download package at klicksafe.de/sid
- Content and discussions will be available on social media under the hashtags #FitForDemocracy and #SID2022.
- All interested parties are called upon to participate in the day of action themselves, to become active and creative and thus make a strong case for democracy. Planned actions can be registered at klicksafe.de/sid.
