Week tegen Pesten 2024 Anti-Bullying Week 2024: Make A Noise About Bullying

Anti-Bullying Week is a special event organised by the Anti-Bullying Alliance to raise awareness about the negative impacts of bullying, encourage people to stand up against discrimination and promote the importance of individuality. It's a week dedicated to celebrating the values of inclusivity, respect and kindness.

An important aspect of Anti-Bullying Week is encouraging individuals, particularly young people, teachers, and parents, to speak up against bullying, seek help when needed and be proactive in creating a safer environment in their schools and communities.

When is Anti-Bullying Week 2024?

This year, Anti-Bullying Week 2024 will take place between Monday 13th and Friday 17th November 2024.

What is the theme for Anti-Bullying Week 2024?

The theme for Anti-Bullying Week 2024 is Make a Noise About Bullying. Teachers and children wanted a theme that empowers them to do something positive to counteract the harm and hurt that bullying causes. Too often, we stay quiet when we see bullying going on, stay silent about the pain it inflicts, or play it off as just having a laugh. But we shouldn't! Instead, let's shout about it and speak up when we see prejudice or discrimination. 

Anti-Bullying Week 2024 encourages us all to speak out about bullying. By raising awareness, we not only support those who are being bullied, but also let potential bullies know that their actions are unacceptable. Whether this is speaking to a trusted adult or reaching out to a person who is being bullied, let's make a noise this Anti-Bullying Week!

How to celebrate Anti-Bullying Week 2024:

This is a chance to round off your fantastic week by celebrating friendships with others. It's a great way to encourage both children and adults to reach out to friends and peers (whether that's at home, school, or in the community) and share positive things with each other. You might choose to celebrate this day in school by enjoying some fun friendship-themed activities, like this Friendship Scavenger Hunt Game!
