As a young person, what can I do to end violence in school?

You can act now!

For far too many students around the world, violence has become an everyday lesson, but together we can change the situation and create safe environments where children and young people can live and learn without fear.

If you are a student, or a young person, you can :

Be kind: Strike up a conversation with a shy classmate or quiet coworker. Even something small can improve someone’s day – especially if they are going through something difficult.

Speak out: If you are worried about your or a friend’s safety, urgently speak to someone you trust – this could be a parent, teacher, close friend, older sibling, or a child helpline, which are often anonymous. You can find a full list of the Child helpline number by clicking here (external link, data charges may apply)

Remember that you are not alone. Do not keep your fears, concerns or questions to yourself. We know it can be difficult to tell another person about what is happening, because of shame or embarrassment, but you have a right to be safe! If it's difficult to talk about, try writing your experiences down and giving it to someone you trust to read or by sending/ posting/ dropping it anonymously somewhere a responsible/ trusted adult can see.

Share your ideas: how can schools and communities be made safer for you and your friends/ fellow students

Want to tell world leaders exactly what you think? BTS

Get creative: Create your School Superhero comic to help you and your friend and fellow students feel safe to learn.

Deepen your knowledge & take action:

If you need guidance on how to set up a project and a team in your community you can read our “Gen2030 Future is yours” content on Internet of Good Things. You can access the Gen2030 Future is yours content

👍 Gen Unlimited - the future is yours!

Mark your school/ country on this Global Map (external link, data charges may apply) to demonstrate to world leaders that young people are taking action to combat violence!

Don’t let violence be an everyday lesson. Demand change to #ENDviolence in schools.
