Violence in and around schools, including bullying, physical attacks and physical fights, undermines learning and has negative physical and mental health consequences. No country can achieve inclusive and equitable quality education if learners experience violence in school.
Launched in 2017 by Japan’s public broadcaster NHK, FACES: How I Survived being Bullied is an international project led by a group of public media organizations which aims to fight against bullying on a global scale. This vast collection features 2-minute testimonies of bullying from all over the world. Bullying is a social problem in every culture, but if we come together and share our experiences, we can attain an objective view of the current state of the problem which is the first step in designing a solution.
