We are glad to bring young school students activists another opportunity to meet with their international peers and work together!

OBESSU is opening a call for participants for a Study Session APAC – Active Participation Against Cyber-bullying.

The event, organised in cooperation with the Youth Department of the Council of Europe, will take place in Strasbourg, from 22nd till 29th of April 2018.

If anti-bullying has always been an important aspect of OBESSU work, this new form, the cyber-bullying, is a new topic that OBESSU decided to tackle. That is why it is so important for OBESSU to frame its initiatives on this topic with the work done so far by the Council of Europe. This Study Session will be a great opportunity for OBESSU and its Member, Candidate and Affiliate Organisations to deepen their knowledge on these main aspects of bullying, to place them in a bigger Human Rights framework, to share best practices and experience, and to shape new advocating initiatives to combat online hate speech and cyberbullying.

If you are interested in participating, please read the attached call carefully and apply no later than 12th March (for participants requiring VISA to enter France, no later than 5th March, to facilitate the VISA procedure).

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact our team: secretariat@obessu.org or Sara – Board Member responsible for this event: sara@obessu.org
