‘How it feels to make other children happy’

Empower respectful societies

More and more children, teenagers, adults, parents and teachers struggle with bullying almost every day at home, in the playground, in the classrooms, on the internet, within communities and beyond. Almost on a daily basis, kids who seem to be weaker, different or more vulnerable and have lower self-esteem are the target of bullying.

According to PISA, anxiety and bullying are the main threats to students’ wellbeing. Hence, they also have an impact on students’ creativity, teamworking skills and basic ability to learn. As a solution, PISA suggests creating a safe and encouraging learning environment, made of supportive teachers and positive peer relations.

How can we help to stop bullying in schools?

Mightifier is a positive peer communication tool with measurable impact for classrooms. It turns students into active good-doers by making them experience how great it feels to do good things for other people and to make others happy. There are two main functions in the Mightifier App: The first one teaches students how to give each other positive feedback based on their classmates character strengths. This develops individual strength profiles for each student. The other main function is a Wellbeing Pulse which allows teachers to follow the well-being development of the class, to see e.g. if there are students without any friends.

With an inspiring event in the Knights’ Hall in The Hague on 24 April, we kicked off the joint development of shared purposes to take on global challenges. Do you think that the solution of Mightifier can actively contribute to our shared purpose of empowering respectful societies by reduce bullying in schools and help children with their self esteem?

Then let us know how we can try to help Mightifier reach that goal and if you can be a part of that development. Share this post and your thoughts using the hashtag #IdeasfromEU, tweet us or visit our website: ideasfrom.eu
