Lucy Thomas OAM: Online Session: Young people at the centre: Empowering school students to tackle (cyber)bullying

Session Info:

Lucy Thomas OAM has dedicated her life to tackling bullying and building social leadership among young people. Shortly after finishing school, she and her sister launched ‘PROJECT ROCKIT’ to effect change on issues of (cyber)bullying and put young people’s voices at the centre. PROJECT ROCKIT has since grown into Australia’s youth-driven movement against bullying, hate and prejudice, using a strengths-based approach to empower students with the skills to challenge bullying instead of standing by watching. Under Lucy’s leadership, PROJECT ROCKIT serves as an exclusive youth partner to the social media platforms we upload our lives to – Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and Google – and advocates to government on matters of young people and digital participation.

Here Lucy shares learning drawn from hundreds of thousands of young people all over the country to explore the question: How can we empower school students to challenge (cyber)bullying in our school communities, online and beyond? This talk packs a punch with equal parts inspiration and practical strategies that are relevant to any audience
