The KID_ACTIONS project aims to address cyberbullying among children and adolescents through interactive education and gamification within formal and non-formal learning settings at the EU level. The project aims to support teachers, educators, and youth workers in fostering effectiveness and efficiency in education about the risks and effects of cyberbullying, to raise awareness among secondary school students and youth centres and encourage reporting by victims and bystanders.
The project is coordinated by the Fondazione Bruno Kessler (FBK) from Italy in partnership with the Provincia Autonoma di Trento (PAT) and Amnesty International from Italy and Youth for Exchange and Understanding (YEU) and EUN from Belgium.
The two-day meeting was cherished as a partnership get-together and they aimed to establish a common understanding of the project, both from a managerial and administrative point of view.
Coordinated by the lead partner, FBK Italy, each partner presented their organizations, their team involved as well as their role in the project. Next, it was the turn of the Work Package Leaders to analyze and present the ambitions and challenges in each given task.
For this project, YEU International is mainly responsible for identifying and assessing the experiences, needs, and expectations of relevant stakeholders and target groups at the EU level, to elaborate the methodology and socio-technical requirements of the KID_ACTIONS Digital Education Platform and its training and educational path.
