Because democracy and human rights start with us, the Charter helps us find ways to apply these values and play an effective and positive role in society. All 47 Council of Europe member states have signed the Charter, pledging to combat all forms of violence and discrimination in education, especially bullying.

This project helps young people and youth organisations identify and combat racism and discrimination online. The Internet is part of young peopleís social world and they must be its guardians. The Movement is run in all Council of Europe member states.
