The ongoing process of digital transformation, constantly evolving and updating its features, carries along many transformations in the daily life of people, modifying human relations as well as communication schemes, not only for adults, but also for the majority of youngsters. In this context, also the means and shapes of the phenomenon of bullyism have changed and transformed, and those solutions that were valid once, need today to be reviewed and updated in order to fit in the present circumstances. Cyber bullying, compared to bullying, can be even more damaging, since it can occur at any time, day or night, and be perpetrated by anonymous sources. The challenge with cyber bullying is the fact that it takes on so many different forms.

The project addresses this issue starting from the environment of school, by engaging teachers and making them co-creators of the safety of teenagers. The two sectorial priorities directly related to school (developing high quality early childhood education and care systems, and development of key competences) are inter-related and inter-dependent. Prevention of bullying and cyber-bullying starts with educating children about the harmful effects of bullying and that their actions have an impact on others. in order to do so, it is necessary to provide the teachers with the right tools to approach the problem of cyber-bullying. Only by providing teachers with those key competences that would allow them to recognize, first, and then prevent and fight back cyber-bullyism, a better-quality education can be developed and sustained.
