Bullying in schools deprives millions of children and young people of the fundamental right to education. A recent UNESCO report reveals that more than 30% of the world's students have been victims of bullying, with devastating consequences on academic achievement, school drop-out, and physical and mental health. While the issue of bullying may seem challenging to overcome, we know that many learners, parents and teachers are already taking practical and achievable steps to end it. 

In the lead-up to this year’s first International Day Against Violence and Bullying at School Including Cyberbullying on November 5 and as part of an International Conference on School Bullying hosted by UNESCO and France, we are creating a 5-minute video on bullying, featuring the voices of learners, parents and teachers from across the world. We want to know what your experiences of bullying have been, and what actions you are taking to overcome it. We will screen this video at the international conference and share it across the world, so that Governments, UN agencies, and other learners, teachers and parents, can hear your stories and learn from your experiences.    

What do to: Please record a short video (60 seconds maximum) responding to all of the questions below (see page 2 of the attached). Videos can be recorded in English, Spanish or French. We will consider including your story as part of our 5-minute video on bullying. 

How to share: Please email to Sylvain Séguy: s.seguy@unesco.org. Large files can be emailed to
Sylvain Séguy via WeTransfer.com.

Deadline: Please send your video before Monday 19 October 2020 (6pm - Paris time).

Consent: Please fill in the attached consent form and return it with your submission. We cannot accept your submission without a consent form.
