Netsafe organises a variety of events to enable people to confidently access digital opportunities and prevent online harm.
The Annual Trans-Tasman Online Safety Conference
Each year, Netsafe co-hosts an annual online safety conference with Australia’s Office of the eSafety Commissioner. This is the premier event for online safety in the trans-Tasman region. We are looking forward to bringing this event back when it is safe to do so. You can register your interest in attending this event by emailing us.
Netsafe LIVE events
At Netsafe LIVE events, our Education Advisors talk about the risks, challenges and opportunities of digital tech, and the practical ways we can help young people to be safe online. There are sessions for school leaders, educators and parents. Netsafe LIVE sessions are run throughout the country, so check out when the next Netsafe LIVE event is being held or find out how you can host one.
Netsafe provides tailored presentations for schools, Communities of Learning, organisations and businesses, and community groups throughout New Zealand. Our presentations are developed in consultation with you, with your audience’s needs in mind, and are facilitated by one of our online safety experts. In addition to offering presentations, Netsafe can also facilitate online safety discussions, host workshops or provide consultation services.
Safer Internet Day
Safer Internet Day is celebrated globally in February each year to promote the safe and positive use of digital technology for children and young people – it’s on February 9 in 2021.
This is an international event aimed at encouraging and promoting a better online experience celebrated by more than 50 nations. Netsafe started coordinating Safer Internet Day back in 2014 and will again take the coordination reigns in 2021.
Mostly this day is about encouraging people to have a more positive time. Some of our supporters include Netflix, Facebook, Google, Twitter, Noel Leeming, Countdown, Youthline, Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand and many more government agencies, schools and non-government organisations.
If you’re keen to join us email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will provide the messages and resources that might be useful, but ultimately supporters have the flexibility to decide how they best promote the day. There’s more details here, and of course we can keep talking about it!
