Singapore’s Cybersports & Online Gaming Association (SCOGA) has partnered with the Singapore Kindness Movement to introduce the cyber wellness campaign “BuddyNotBullySG” to students in twenty Secondary Schools island-wide.
“BuddyNotBullySG” is a campaign that encourages secondary school students to take action by pledging to act graciously on the Internet. The programme consists of talks and roadshows to each of the twenty Secondary Schools, with students logging in online to make a pledge on how they will act more graciously or help their friends be more gracious online. Students are also encouraged to create collaterals to express and share their understanding gracious online behaviour.
The campaign will start in February 2014 and will end in June 2014 with the first talk happening at School of the Arts on 5th February 2014.
Students’ works resulting from this campaign will be exhibited when the campaign ends in June, where prizes will be given to winning works.
The campaign hopes to inculcate kindness and graciousness in youths whether they are interacting with others in online video games, chat rooms or social networks.
