NGB Italy Presentation: “App No Bullismo!”

Posted by International Inner Wheel | Dec 06, 2018 |

On December 4th, at “Palazzo delle Arti” in Naples, the city authorities of the First District and the Regional Department for Equal Opportunities presented the service "NO BULLISMO!" (NO BULLYING!), the App created by the IW Italy National Council. The social importance of the initiative was highlighted by the participation of representatives from all 10 Naples Districts. They are highly interested in sharing with Inner Wheel and the major civil institutions the promotion of this useful support for bullied victims. 

The President of NC Italy Anna Maria Falconio, author of the project, clearly illustrated its features: the App is downloadable on smartphones and tablets and allows victims to connect quickly with emergency phone numbers. Prestigious speakers, magistrates, politicians and psychologists, analysed bullying and cyberbullying under multiple aspects. All of them emphasized the qualities of IW App, at a time when the spread of this problem is increasing the need to raise awareness among young people, schools, families and various institutions.  

A big audience attended the presentation, parents, teachers and many students. The intervention of a young YouTuber, who has more than 5,000 followers, was very much appreciated as he promised to promote the initiative, thus enlarging the audience of users of App NO BULLISMO!


 This significant event represented a recognition of the social value of NC Italy service, strictly connected with IIW solidarity commitment.
