The whole-education approach to bullying prevention

International thematic meeting on bullying #1

The whole-education approach to bullying prevention

Tuesday 23 March 2021, from 13.00 – 15.00 (GMT +1)

UNESCO and the World Anti-Bullying Forum invite you to the first international meeting in an ongoing series about school bullying. Four virtual meetings will be held between March and September, contributing to the preparation of the 2021 World Anti-Bullying Forum, to take place in Stockholm on 1 – 3 November.

The first meeting will explore the whole-education approach to bullying prevention, recognising that the only way to put an end to school bullying and cyberbullying is for schools to work together with the community, including education, technological and societal systems. It will define the whole-education approach, present its nine components, and explore implementation and further research.
