The aim of the project is to raise awareness of the problem and looking for tools to eliminate it. We aim to exchange our experiences and good practice, carry out peer learning activities and workshops, attend LTT activities and search for ways to appease the aggression at schools.

The project “Stand Up Against Bullying” is a cross-sectoral cooperation with 7 countries i.e. Italy, Romania, Czech Republic, The Republic of Macedonia, Portugal and Poland who are coordinated by Turkey to combat bullying and early school leaving due to it.  The project brings together a higher education institution, a VET center, a public primary school, a public secondary school, a youth organization, a centre for educational resources and assistance and a local/regional cultural organization. The partnership is based on a collaborative work in an international setting to promote regional development and cross sectoral cooperation to build bridges and share knowledge between the different formal and informal education and training sectors.

Within the increasing devastating effects of bullying, it has now become imperative that schools take the problem more seriously and explore ways to reduce it. In order to deal with bullying, which can appear in many kinds and degrees, schools should search for opportunities to build the capacity of students and teachers to take actions to stamp out bullying.

Two types of Learning-Teaching-Training activities are embedded in the project programme: 2 short-term joint-staff trainings and 5 short-term mobility of pupils. Our project employs project-based collaboration, peer-learning, workshops, virtual laboratories, virtual collaboration spaces, information, guidance, teaching and counselling activities to accomplish the goal of our project. Questionnaires, interviews, observations and assessments will help us measure our performance.

  1. Short-term exchanges of groups of pupils (Turkey, Poland, Portugal)
  2. Short-term joint staff training events (Macedonia, Czech Republic)
  3. Transnational meetings
  4. Local activities: flashmob, photo exhibition, interviews and surveys, open promo day.
