It’s officially one week until Stop Cyberbullying Day 2017 and we’ve been working all hours to bring you an exciting event full of creative content, amazing giveaways, celebrity activity and much more!
This year, Stop Cyberbullying Day will take place on Friday June 16th with people around the world both on and offline coming together to encourage inclusion, diversity and positivity online. We’ve got an incredible lineup of guests, celebrities, experts, organisations and companies who have kindly donated their time, expertise and support for this year’s Stop Cyberbullying Day.
“WE HAVE RECEIVED AN INCREDIBLE AMOUNT OF SUPPORT LEADING UP TO THIS YEAR’S STOP CYBERBULLYING DAY. WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK EVERYBODY INVOLVED IN THE PLANS FOR THE DAY, WE WOULDN’T BE ABLE TO MAKE STOP CYBERBULLYING DAY THE ONGOING SUCCESS THAT IT IS WITHOUT THE KIND CONTRIBUTIONS OF PEOPLE AND ORGANISATIONS WHO HELP US TO RAISE AWARENESS OF THE IMPORTANT ISSUES AFFECTING INTERNET USERS OF ALL AGES. IT IS INSPIRING TO SEE PEOPLE COMING TOGETHER TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THIS WAY.”
Iain Alexander, Head of Engagement, The Cybersmile Foundation
