You can’t always see the pain caused by bullying, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt.
Please take a moment to watch and share our brand new Big March campaign video. Please share the video with your friends and family on Facebook, Twitter and any other social networks and help us spread the word!
Almost 95,000 people from across Europe are supporting BeatBullying and #DeleteCyberbullying’s Big March campaign which will take place on 11 June. We are marching online for every child that has hidden their tears, bruises, and scars.

BeatBullying and #DeleteCyberbullying
Children have the right to be protected from being hurt and mistreated, physically or mentally, they have a right to privacy; all this is enshrined in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. We all share a collective responsibility to guarantee that these rights are enforced and enable children and young people to play, learn, develop, and participate, both offline and online.
Check out our brand new video: ‘Cyberbullying: there is a way out!’
In Europe, statistics and figures show, that about one in four children experience cyberbullying at some point in their lives. The impact of cyberbullying on victims is well known; it affects their self-esteem, school performance and can even lead to suicidal thoughts and attempts. Cyberbullying also has an impact on the perpetrators, bystanders, parents and schools. Therefore this video is intended as a tool for all concerned:
• Parents: Teach your kids empathy and talk with them about their online activities.
• Teachers: Help kids understand the line between funny and cruel and develop an antibullying charter in your school.
• Kids: If you witness cyberbullying, report it and offer your support.
Funded by the European Union Daphne programme, as part of the #DeleteCyberbullying project, COFACE and its partners want to raise awareness about the issue of cyberbullying, what can be done to prevent and tackle it.
Our objective is that this short educational video is seen by as many people as possible, because only together can we achieve what we set out to do: Delete Cyberbullying.
Join us, take a stand against cyberbullying and speak out for our children’s right to be safe. Images speak louder than words. Show your commitment to #DeleteCyberbullying by sharing this video

What is cyberbullying? What does cyberbullying look like? Is cyberbullying a big deal? What can I do to prevent cyberbullying? What can I do if I am being cyberbullied? What can I do to help someone being cyberbullied? What if I’m scared about getting involved?
We have recently discovered an interesting cyberbullying website from New Zealand. This website contains dedicated guidance for young people, parents and caregivers and teachers who want help to understand and deal with bullying that takes place in cyberspace.
We invite you to discover the short film ‘At a Distance – Standing up to cyberbullying’. This short film shows parents and teachers how bystanders can play an important role in preventing cyberbullying.
The video “To This Day” is haunting and beautiful, powerful and startling, sad and relatable. And, above all, the video and poetry will reshape your views on name calling, harassment and pain, encouraging you to confront and end the cycle of hatred and bullying kids face.
“My experiences with violence in schools still echo throughout my life but standing to face the problem has helped me in immeasurable ways,” Shane Koyczan writes on the “To This Day” website.
