A panel debate will kick off the day with Facebook/Instagram, Yubo & Tik Tok. These companies will then provide a safety briefing to school staff on their platform’s approach to safety and bullying.
The Diana Award runs the leading Anti-Bullying Campaign in the UK and Ireland giving young people, professionals and parents the skills, confidence and training to tackle all forms of bullying as Anti-Bullying Ambassadors. The events are sponsored by The Department for Education with support from Facebook, Instagram, Trutex, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, Yubo & Tik Tok.
“Anti-Bullying Week is a chance for us all to come together to stand up to all forms of bullying. These events will provide our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors with further skills to enable them to effectively create campaigns in their schools which shape attitudes and change behaviours. This combined with expert knowledge from the technology companies will support them and school staff to keep understand how to keep safe online and protect their peers from harmful behaviours”.
