BBK Jagon, against bullying in schools Programme aimed at raising awareness about bullying in schools and preventing cases of bullying and cyber-bullying in Bizkaia.

BBK Jagon is a BBK educational programme aimed at raising awareness about the effects of peer violence, bullying and cyberbullying.

By means of this programme, BBK wants to play an active part in the prevention and reduction of bullying in schools and to raise awareness among pupils in Year 6 of primary school, and in Year 1 and 2 of secondary school, about the effects of peer violence.

In the 2018/19 school year, a total of 553 cases of bullying were reported in the Basque Country, 110 more than in the previous year.

The BBK Jagon programme aims to combat bullying in the classroom, raise awareness about the impact of abuse among children and provide students with tools to identify cases of bullying in their environment.

The model for the programme, which is very practical and dynamic, consists of carrying out of an activity split into four weekly sessions from Monday to Thursday at the BBK Urdaibai Centre in Busturia, which is attended by students and professionals who want to take part.

During these sessions, group dynamics are developed which, through practical examples of bullying, allow adolescents to strengthen the spirit of collaboration, support for each other, and the ability to take responsibility. This is all done from an educational and recreational perspective, where values such as respect, responsibility and coexistence are encouraged.

Registration for the BBK Jagon Programme for the 2019/2020 academic year closed on May 3, but the new edition of the 2020/2021 programme will soon be published on the BBK website.

In the field of education, BBK also collaborates with associations and experts in other areas and, last year, projects were developed to promote gender equality, such as BBK Bardin and environmental education, such as the SESZ/CEEP project.
