Actor Ayushmann Khurrana, who is UNICEF’s Celebrity Advocate for their global campaign Ending Violence Against Children (EVAC), shares his thoughts on creating a safe space for kids on the internet to mark the International Day against Violence and Bullying at School including Cyberbullying.
Ayushmann said: “Bullying is traumatic for every person, and in the present day it also happens online. In the case of cyberbullying, children are often not sure of how and where to access help, whether the bullying originates from people they know in school, in their communities or strangers on the internet.”
The International Day was marked with the theme: ‘Tackling cyberbullying and other forms of online violence involving children and young people’.
Ayushmann added: “As parents, teachers and family members, it is our collective responsibility to ensure that all children are aware of how to stay safe online, to create a safe space where children who experience online violence do not hesitate to seek help.”
He urged: “Together, let us make the internet a safer place.”
