THE Anti-Cyberbullying Taskforce will convene in Toowoomba tonight for a public forum.
Lead by columnist Madonna King, the Queensland Anti-Cyberbullying Taskforce was established in February to develop proposals for Queensland to address the complex and pervasive issue of cyberbullying.
According to the Taskforce’s website, the public forum tonight at the Clive Berghofer Stadium will seek ideas from the public to help prevent or reduce cyberbullying of young people and to support people affected by the cyberbullying of young people.
The forum is open to parents and all members of the public.
It will take place in the function room at the Stadium, at 47 Arthur Street, from 6pm to 7.30pm.
The taskforce was set up after a public call to stand up to cyberbullying following the suicide of 14-year-old Dolly Evertt in January.
“I want to ensure we help Queensland kids and their parents and guardians to deal with the issues of cyberbullying, by ensuring we have the tools and strategies available to them,” Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said when the taskforce was set up.
“We need to work together as a community to address this issue. This is impacting on too many Australians.”
