The European Antibullying Network initiative brings together 17 partners from 12 EU member states. The partners forming the network are engaged in the areas of prevention and tackling of bullying in all its various forms.
“The Smile of the Child”, the coordinator of the project, receives several calls every year from children and parents asking how to deal with bullying. In collaboration with the Ministry of Education, the organization's psychologists and social workers visit schools throughout Greece and talk with parents, teachers and students about bullying. They have also been invited by the Anti–Cyber Crime Subdivision of the Hellenic Police to provide counseling to children who have been victims of cyberbullying. Moreover, they are invited by the media to provide information on bullying and school violence.
Equally, EAN’s partners demonstrate a significant experience in the implementation of European programmes against bullying. Partners of the project are NGOs and educational actors.
