About the innovation

Why did you create this innovation?

Live Without Bullying was created in 2015, addressing children's and adults' need to find an everyday and-easy-to-use tool where they can seek for help in incidents of school and cyber bullying, anonymously and free of charge.

How does your innovation work in practice?

This specially designed platform allows children to talk – confidentially and anonymously – about their concerns with trained counselors - psychologists. The platform also educates teachers, parents and children about bullying and allows them to exchange views and seek for good practices on combating bullying. Logging in to www.livewithoutbullying.com is very simple and the site is user-friendly. The user needs simply to register using any name and set a password.

How has it been spreading?

The platform has been introduced to schools across the country - on the basis of MoU signed with the Greek Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Sports. At the same time, we have implemented several educational activities to help children, parents and educators understand why bullying occurs and help them acquire the skills needed for addressing the phenomenon. Since 2015, more than 30,000 students have received support against bullying by our psychologists. We have also trained more than 6,000 students and more than 3,000 educators in over 100 schools, while over 4,000 parents have been informed about the program and have received basic advice and guidance on how to identify and handle cases of their children's involvement in bullying.

If I want to try it, what should I do?

If you experience or want to be informed about school or cyber bullying, you can log in to www.livewithoutbullying.com. You can simply register using any name and set a password. Then you can start chatting with an experienced counselor or watch our seminars for teachers and parents.
