BeSmartOnline! strongly advocates against cyberbullying as we are continuously made aware of how it can greatly affect the victim, leaving a dent in the young person's state of mind, emotional well-being, and behaviour.

The Travellers, in collaboration with our project, managed to vividly capture the trauma cyberbullying can cause in their song Simili. We encourage you to share this message with their song so that it unifies us to take a stand against violence and bullying at school including cyberbullying.

The BeSmartOnline! Project

The project is implemented through a consortium coordinated by the Foundation for Social Welfare Services (FSWS) and brings together the Office of the Commissioner for Children, the Directorate for Learning and Assessment Programmes (DLAP) and the Malta Police Force - Cyber Crime Unit. The consortium is supported by the expertise and experience of a number of strategic partners’ who contribute through a purposely set up Advisory Board.

All partners work together to raise awareness and educate children and teens, parents/carers and educators on the safer use of the Internet.  The partners also established and promote, an online reporting facility for illegal online content, particularly child abuse material and offers support services to respective victims.
