Telenor Norway says anti-bullying scheme 'Use Your Head' has reached 100,000 children in 11 years

Monday 21 June 2021 | 11:58 CET | News
Norwegian operator Telenor said that 100,000 pupils have now undergone its "Use Your Head" scheme to counter online bullying, launched eleven years ago with the Red Cross. The partners re-launched the scheme in 2019 and Telenor said six out of ten pupils now say they will think twice in the future before sharing a picture of themselves on the internet. Seven out of ten said "Use Your Head" has taught them something new about friendship, and one in four teachers said that pupils who have done the programme have come to talk to them about problems encountered online.
