Bullying in schools is a worldwide problem, with negative and sometimes fatal consequences. Something must be done about it. Children have the right to learn in a safe environment. The Council of Europe's film 'Beat Bullying' shows how human rights and citizenship education programmes equip students and pupils with the understanding, skills and confidence they need to help stop bullying and violence at school, including cyberbullying. The solutions require effort, but are neither costly nor legally complex. Teacher-friendly materials and campaigns are available free of charge from the Council of Europe.
