About this webinar

KiVa is an innovative, award-winning and evidence-based antibullying program, built on cutting-edge research on bullying and its mechanisms. KiVa has been developed at the University of Turku, with funding from the Ministry of Education and Culture of Finland. It is a sought-after program and is implemented world-wide from Finland to New Zealand and from Argentina to the UK.

In this webinar you will learn about:

  • The phenomenon of bullying and how does the KiVa antibullying program intervene in bullying and victimization
  • The effectiveness of the KiVa program
  • How KiVa can be implemented outside of Finland

About the INSPIRE series: In winter 2019 ChildHub features the INSPIRE package: The INSPIRE package represents an evidence-based approach to revitalizing, focusing, and expanding current multisectoral efforts to prevent and respond to violence against children. It was developed in collaboration with the WHO, CDC, the Global Partnership to End Violence Against Children, PEPFAR, PAHO, UNICEF, UNODC, USAID, Together for Girls, and the World Bank. The package is based on convergence between these agencies and partnerships in the strategies they have been recommending, and presents the best available evidence.
