ACBC.com against Cyberbullying!

Cyberbullying is a serious issue these days, 1 out of 10 children are victim to this kind of bullying. Business Development Friesland is proud that Inqubator Leeuwarden can contribute to solve this problem by initiating a new project, ACBC.com (stands for Address Cyberbullying By Creating a Conscious Online Community). This project presents a solution to this problem and zooms in on the causes and effects of online bullying. Inqubator Leeuwarden works together on this project with EU partners from Greece, Romania, the United Kingdom, Portugal and Lithuania. Besides EU partners we also work with a former member of our incubator, 8D Games. Inqubator Leeuwarden is looking forward to work with them on this project! 

Cyberbullying is a serious issue throughout Europe. This becomes clear in an EU research on this topic (2018) that states that 51 % of the Europeans feel badly, or not at all informed about cyberbullying. The research also shows that 86% of the Europeans feel increasingly exposed to cyberbullying.

To solve this problem, a game will be developed by 8D Games (www.8D-games.nl). This game can be used by youthworkers and teachers, for example in educational settings, to help youngsters better understand what cyberbullying is and what its consequences are and to show them how their own actions affect the online community. 

Because of the endless possibilties smartphones offer nowadays and the easy accessibilty youngsters have to the internet, cyberbullying can exist. The ultimate goal of the project is to make youngsters think more critical about their role in social media and media in general. By letting them experience this, their way of thinking changes and in this manner the problem is being addressed in a more structural way.
