Do we know what is cyber violence?

Members of the Be a Man Club Mostar as part of the campaign “React as Human” have made a video that talks about cyber violence (violence over the internet) to which a growing number of young people is exposed every day.

Violence over the Internet, known worldwide as cyberbullying, is a general term for every communication activity with cyber technology that can be considered harmful both for the individual and for the common good. This form of violence among peers includes situations when a child or teenager is exposed to the attack of another child, a teenager or a group of children, via the internet or mobile phone.

Members of the Be a Man Club Mostar as part of the campaign “React as Human” have made a video that talks about cyber violence (violence over the internet) to which a growing number of young people is exposed every day.

“React as Human” is a regional campaign that aims to raise awareness of young people about the violence that surrounds us, as well as to empower young people to react in a positive and safe way, to take an active role in preventing and stopping violence situations. In everyday life and in the media it can be seen that one of the major problems is that people do not react to the violence which they see and which happens around them, they act as if they are not concerned with it and often they only watch it or even film it with their mobile phones, rather than react in the right way and try to stop the violence. React as Human: speak up, support the victim, stand up, ask for help, deter a bully.

Be a Man Club Mostar is part of activities of the project “Promoting Healthier Lifestyles Among Youth in Bosnia and Herzegovina by Challenging Gender Stereotypes”. This project is supported by the Swiss Government and the OAK Foundation and implemented with the support of CARE International Balkans.
