Be Safe
Be Smart
Be Kind

The Internet is a double-edged sword. Our simplest actions online can be the difference between vicious mass animosity and constructive dialogue. With a high-level of digital connectedness cutting across all demographics, we need to encourage a new netiquette. We must be aware of the lasting and real consequences of our choices online, and take on the responsibility of affecting positive change. The theme ‘1 Click Away’ expounds on the power behind the simple action of a click. This is to encourage netizens to embrace conscious, discerning, and empathetic online actions, in order to create a safer, smarter, and kinder internet for all.

About Clicky

Clicky is that small voice of reason that pops up when we explore the digital world. He gets us to pause, ponder, and differentiate between positive, thoughtful clicks and self-centered, irresponsible clicks. Clicky is modelled after the computer mouse – a symbol of the power we hold as we make choices online. Remember, a better internet is only 1 Click Away!
