2013’s Anti-Bullying Week (taking place on the 18th-22nd November) is set to call on children and young people to take the lead on creating a future without bullying – using new technologies to promote positive communication rather than being held back by cyberbullying with the them of “The future is ours: safe, fun and connected”. #ABW2013.
The aims for anti-bullying week are:
- To ensure all children and young people are equipped to recognise and challenge bullying behaviour wherever it happens – whether face to face or in cyberspace.
- To equip schools, colleges and youth service leaders with resources to encourage youth led anti-bullying initiatives and the positive use of new technologies.
- To educate those who support and work with children to recognise those who may be particularly vulnerable to bullying through new technologies – encouraging an inclusive approach to all e-safety education.
