Children and Young People's Minister for Scotland, Maree Todd:
“The internet is becoming increasingly central to our lives and especially the lives of our children and young people. It connects and empowers us, and it is important that we ensure that children and young people are able to enjoy the internet, show resilience and take advantage of the many opportunities it has to offer in a way that is safe and supported.
That is why we are delighted to work with the UK Safer Internet Centre to raise awareness and promote Safer Internet Day in Scotland. This year’s theme looks at understanding how consent works in a digital world and reminds us of the importance of understanding healthy, respectful, consensual and safe relationships and that we all have a responsibility to respect each other’s privacy and consent.”
