It accompanied the Up2Us Anti-Cyberbullying Teachers Kit and aims to empower young people to be an Upstander and not a Bystander.

#Forever

The Forever video is the cornerstone of the Lockers resource for post-primary students, which deals with the sharing of explicit self-generated images of minors. Some things last forever, others don’t. Sharing nudes that could hurt or embarrass others causes real harm, damage reputations and change lives FOREVER. It can also be a criminal offence.

Say No!

#BeInCtrl

The #BeInCtrl campaign looks at online exploitation and sexual coercion. The Be in Ctrl resource is supported by the Say No! short film, created by Europol and the #BeInCtrl video. The campaign aims at making young people aware of these crimes and showing them that they are not alone, and promotes help-seeking and reporting of incidents.
