Carlisle United Football Club has added its support to a global awareness campaign and is encouraging fans to ‘Create, Connect and Share Respect’ to help make the internet a better place this Safer Internet Day.
On Tuesday 6 February 2018, millions across the UK and globally will be celebrating Safer Internet Day and United have pledged our support along with hundreds of schools and organisations across the UK.
Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, the day is a great opportunity to talk to your family and friends about the responsible, respectful, critical and creative use of technology, and to remember that ‘a better internet starts with you’.
The Blues will be part of the social media ‘Thunderclap’ today – so keep an eye out for our tweets and messages, and we have also assisted with presentations in local schools to raise awareness of the potential perils of the internet.
Visit the UK Safer Internet Centre website (www.saferinternet.org.uk) where you can take the Safer Internet Day quiz, see what’s happening on the day, and find out more about what you can do to help your friends and family to stay safe online.
