Anti-Bullying Week is an annual event organised by respectme, Scotland's Anti-Bullying Service. The week aims to raise awareness of bullying in and out of school, and highlight ways of preventing and responding to it.
The 2011 Anti-Bullying Week focused on cyber-bullying. The campaign theme was based around the notion that 'the internet is a place, not a thing'. Its core message informed and educated adults about the internet being a social place that children and young people go to, and reinforced the responsibility adults have to take an active interest and make sure that online environments are as safe as the places they visit in the 'real' world.
