Following a successful conference in Helsinki, MLL, coordinators of the Finnish Safer Internet Centre invite you to join an open webinar on bullying and youth participation.

The webinar will take place on Tuesday, 20 December 2016 from 13:00-14:30 CET. It is based on the results of a two-year project run by several European NGOs committed to bullying prevention and co-funded by the EC Daphne Programme. The NGOs have integrated their approaches and collected evidence and practices into a new material to be launched during the webinar. The material is targeted to organisations who work with schools, train, raise awareness, or build programmes against (cyber)bullying. Instead of a new programme, it describes an innovative and adaptable approach, together with ideas and practices to promote youth engagement in (cyber)bullying prevention.

Taking part in the webinar will help you to build sustainable and responsible ways to integrate participatory approaches in bullying prevention and challenge several existing practices in (cyber)bullying prevention.

The webinar agenda will follow the contents of the material, and will include presentations from several European organisations:

  1. Setting the agenda – beyond bullying prevention
  2. Whole school level – building the process of participation
  3. Class level – social relations in the classroom
  4. Peer level – promoting positive bystander behaviour
  5. Parents – giving out pupils' voice

Please register to participate in the webinar by submitting your email address via the MLL website. MLL will then send you a notification and practical instructions a few days before the event.

A teaser about the forthcoming material is available in an infographic (pdf) as launched at the Helsinki conference on November 2016.
