Have you ever felt afraid of violence in or around your school?
We asked this question to teens around the world and received more than a million responses. Two out of three of you said yes.
But many of you also believe that ending violence in schools is possible, and you told us how. Through the youth-written #ENDviolence Youth Manifesto, teens around the world agreed:
Being kind is the first step to making schools safer.
Your words matter
This International Day of Friendship, we’re taking inspiration from the #ENDviolence Youth Manifesto and joining forces with BTS and Big Hit Entertainment's LOVE MYSELF campaign by spreading words of support and encouragement both online and in person. Even the smallest gesture can make a huge difference.
