Statistics paint a shocking picture of social issues escalating in our society. The time is right to attempt to reverse damaging social trends that cost our country billions of dollars and impact millions of lives each year. 

This social impact initiative aims to reverse these damaging social trends by discussing and addressing the root causes in order to truly prevent future incidents. Our subject matter experts provide practical simple tools to support parents, educators + carers to identify and address bullying behaviours.

We consider the neurological, psychological and social impacts of bullying for both the bullies and the people being bullied.

 We aim to encourage the audience to ask "What does this say about us as a society? What is our part in it and how can we do better?" and ultimately start conversations and change actions to build a kinder, more connected future community.
