#SilentWitness Campaign

#SilentWitness Campaign

For Safer Internet Day, Webwise launch the #SilentWitness campaign which explores the topic of online bullying and abuse.

Comprising three short films, the #SilentWitness campaign explores the lived realities for young people online and aims to spark conversations about how we can all play a role in promoting respect and empathy in online communities.

The films examine the topics of banter, peer pressure, identity based-bullying (racist and homophobic), reflect on the impact bullying can have, and encourages people to report online bullying and abuse.

This campaign was developed in consultation with young people, incorporating the latest research and also based on extensive consultations and presentations made to the Department of Education Anti-Bullying Steering committee. It is a topic that continues to affect many young people, we would be grateful if you could share this important message with your community.
