Problem Statement

Bullying has serious effects on mental and physical wellbeing, especially with young people our age. This is an issue that affects young people across Tasmania and Australia, especially with social media being easily available.


Customer / Problem

Students who are being bullied feel isolated and scared. They often don't know how or where to ask for help or support, or don't feel safe to ask for this support.


Solution

Coloured bands that show that this student is anti-bullying and is a source of support for others who are experiencing bullying. These coloured bands are produced in workshops at school, and students are invited to produce these coloured bands as a way to make friends with and to connect to other students.
