June 18, 2021
Stop Cyberbullying Day 2021 is here and it has never been more important for us all to promote unity and acceptance while speaking out against hate and abuse.
Last year’s event was a huge success with a wide range of activities taking place around the world with brands, celebrities and influencers using their platforms to inspire and empower millions of people to treat others with kindness and respect.
Stop Cyberbullying Day 2021 will be jam-packed with familiar and new faces all coming together to celebrate the power of the internet when used for positive purpose.
“STOP CYBERBULLYING DAY IS A REMINDER THAT ALTHOUGH THE INTERNET IS ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL AND EFFECTIVE TOOLS ON EARTH FOR MAKING THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE – UNFORTUNATELY IT ALSO HIGHLIGHTS THE REALITY THAT THERE ARE STILL LIVES BEING DESTROYED ON A DAILY BASIS WHEN THIS POWER IS ABUSED OR USED FOR THE WRONG REASONS. THROUGH THE INCREDIBLE POWER OF THE INTERNET, WE EACH HAVE THE ABILITY TO CHANGE THE WORLD AND WE ASK THAT PEOPLE USE THAT POWER TO MAKE THE WORLD A KINDER, MORE INCLUSIVE PLACE”
Iain Alexander, The Cybersmile Foundation
