Sadly, many young people experience bullying and cyberbullying. This is a growing problem that affects millions of children and teenagers in Europe, sometimes with devastating consequences.
That is why I commit to becoming an anti-bullying champion in my country, and I support the establishment of a EUROPEAN DAY AGAINST BULLYING, as called for by Members of the European Parliament earlier this year. I will raise awareness of the long term psychological impact that bullying can have on children and young people, and the need for action at a European level.
Many young people suffer in silence from bullying and cyberbullying. By continuously raising awareness and taking a stand in the debate I make my contribution to halting this problem and making bullying unacceptable in Europe.
