Our organisations are actively involved in some activities of studying and preventing cyberbullying in schools and other educational settings (for example, ESF COST programme's Action IS0801), helping and educating parents to deal with cyberbullying, to help their children and pupils to be safe in cyberspace. These adult learners - parents with low competence according to cyberbullying - is target groups of our educational activities. As theresults of some studies of our organisations show, many children and adolescents in schools and other educational settings are involved in cyberbullying as a victim or a perpetrator. In many cases parents, who are more close to them, can not deal with cyberbullying and can not help their children and pupils due to their own low competence in this topic. Taking in to account these findings we want to educate them how to deal with cyberbullying situations, how to prevent it and safe children and adolescents, using all our experience in this area and sharing it between the participants of our partnership.
