It’s happening, New Zealand’s very first Netsafety week has kicked off. Taking place between 26th July – 30th July, now is the time for us to rally together and get involved as a community, to help each other have better and safer experiences online.
Netsafe is leading the charge on this one and who better to, than the experts who revolve their organization around helping keep people internet safe.
In the last year, near 23,000 people approached Netsafe for advice on topics including harassment, image-based abuse, self-harm, grooming, hate speech and scams, not to mention the more common issues swamping schools around online bullying. More kiwis need this support but might not know where to reach out to, this is what netsafety week hopes to shine the light on!
