Campaign against violence 2013 – Keep Violence Outside!

Besides raising attention, our current campaign also seeks to mobilise broad layers of society against violence. The work conducted by the Foundation has also been presented in a documentary called “Make life liveable”, in which, apart from Hungarian and international experts of the field, well-known public figures speak up firmly against violence. The main message of the campaign is communicated through two public information films. Those joining the campaign are expected to place “Keep violence outside” stickers in public spaces, on as many doors as possible (e.g. in public institutions, such as health institutions, welfare services, counselling services, as well as shops, chain stores, vehicles, etc.) The films are complete with print materials (posters, stickers).

If you wish to join or help, you can request stickers and arrange the takeover using the following e-mail address:

The films will be shown on the Internet (on YouTube, Facebook and the Foundation’s website), and hopefully on public service television channels. The socially relevant commercials will also be presented at a discussion, open to the press. The sponsors of the campaign will be ensured publicity on the Foundation’s website, Facebook site and YouTube channel.


TABBY Internet bullying research

„TABBY (Threat Assessment of Bullying Behaviour) on the Internet” international project (2011-2012)

The project involves five countries (Italy, Greece, Cyprus, Bulgaria and Hungary), and it focuses on cyberbullying). It aims to develop a threat assessment questionnaire which children themselves can complete and thus assess what the outcome of a particular cyberbullying incident could be. Within the project, we hold training sessions related to cyberbullying (with special emphasis on the solution) for teachers and children. This latter seeks to train teacher and peer mentors to whom other, bullied students can turn to for help.

The project also involves a panel survey, in which we ask students of 14-15 about their experiences of online bullying and the ways to handle it. During the six months between the preliminary and follow-up questions, the teachers and students prepared at the training conduct informative-mentoring activity at the partner schools. The experiment seeks to measure the effectiveness of this activity. On demand, we provide consultation on children’s online bullying to the schools participating in the research.
