There is no uniform definition of cyberbullying in Europe. Countries where web harassment, blackmail and extortion are not considered bullying. Countries where the phenomenon is practically ignored. Countries where there is a strict penal sanction system and the list of crimes considered part of the phenomenon is long: harassment, violence, threats, insults, defamation, stalking, blackmail and extortion.
Thus, in the absence of a specific crime that defines cyberbullying, each country applies its own law; According to the report "Kids Online" (2012), is affected 6% of the age group between 9 and 16 years of age. Since then things have worsened: according to the report "Net Children Go Mobile" is the victim of cyberbullying 12% of young people between 11 and 16 years. In addition, throughout Europe, only 7% of young victims of cyberbullying informed teachers or parents. One of the most serious problems, in fact, is precisely the absence of reference adults, 60% of the victims - they do not turn to anyone especially because they do not know whom to turn to. Finally, recent statistics confirm that there is an exponential growth in the phenomenon of cyberbullying facilitated by the long periods of Lockdown caused by the pandemic.
The overall objective of the project is to provide sports and socio-cultural professionals with key skills to identify victims and cyberbullying agents in order to prevent the threat in the age group from 6 to 18 years in leisure settings. Combating, preventing and raising awareness against the phenomenon of cyberbullying in contexts where children and adolescents spend their leisure time; paying special attention to girls as the main objectives of the threat. The idea of the project is to prepare and implement training courses for professionals to be carried out remotely and/ or in the presence (depending on the pandemic situation) with participants from different countries using the parameters identified through the exchange of good practices and focus group, with a consequent impact assessment of the results.
As Expected Results: Awareness raising and training of professionals oriented to creating cultural antennas that intercept and prevent cases of cyberbullying in the leisure time contexts of children and adolescents. Identification of tools and methodologies available for the training of educators, sport professionals, social workers against cyberbullying. 
The project will produce as output: Training courses to be carried out in partner countries, reports of focus groups, Guidelines for training operators in sports, socio- cultural contexts against cyberbullying for the age group 6-18, thanks to the analysis of good practices and impact assessment a grid of indicators for the construction of training courses.
