Support the cause in creating a diverse and inclusive Internet for all
With this year’s 'Stop Cyberbullying Day', there’s no better opportunity to teach your students about using the Internet respectfully and responsibly.
'Stop Cyberbullying Day' was founded by The Cybersmile Foundation on June 17th 2012, to promote online positivity and good digital citizenship. Since then, every year on the third Friday in June, 'Stop Cyberbullying Day' has become a growing force of positivity
The day brings together the entire global community in demonstrating our mutual commitment towards making the Internet a safer place for young people to enjoy. The aim is for all young people to have the freedom to use the Internet for learning, gaming and being social without the fear of threats or harassment.

How to get involved
