The Better Internet Campaign (BIC) is the Media Literacy Council’s (MLC) flagship event to champion media literacy in Singapore and bring it into the national consciousness.
This year’s BIC will kickstart with the inaugural Better Internet Conference on 11 March 2019 at the Singapore Institute of Technology, and will feature local and international experts to share their insights on pressing issues of the digital age.
BIC 2019 will run in two phases – from March to May, and later from September to November – and centred around the message of “Be Safe, Be Smart, and Be Kind”.
About 1 Click Away
The Internet is a double-edged sword. Our simplest actions online can be the difference between constructive dialogue and vicious mass animosity. We must be aware of the lasting and real consequences of our choices online, and take on the responsibility of affecting positive change.
Themed ‘1 Click Away’, BIC 2019 will explore the power behind the simple act of a click. It will encourage internet users to embrace conscious, discerning, and empathetic online actions, in order to create a safer, smarter, and kinder internet for all.
Clicky pops up as we explore the digital world, and 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 #1ClickAway!
