3D game combats bullying in schools
New simulation game puts Flemish kids in the role of both bullies and the bullied to spark discussion
Project based on Finnish example, which decreased bullying by 40%
The idea for the game derives from a Finnish project. According to Flemish education minister Pascal Smet, bullying in Finnish schools was reduced by 40% after the launch of the game. The kit also includes background knowledge and lesson suggestions for teachers and an info brochure for parents.
The project was commissioned by the city of Kortrijk and co-funded by the government of Flanders.
