Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - LIFE LOCAL LIFE -

MEM­BER for Glass House An­drew Pow­ell en­cour­ages the peo­ple of the Sun­shine Coast to have their say at a com­mu­nity con­sul­ta­tion event on cy­ber­bul­ly­ing at the Lake Kawana Com­mu­nity Cen­tre from 6pm on May 21.

Mr Pow­ell said he was co-host­ing the event with other lo­cal MPs so res­i­dents can pro­vide their ideas on how best to tackle cy­ber­bul­ly­ing as a com­mu­nity.

“Ideas gath­ered at the con­sul­ta­tion event will in­form the work of the Queens­land Anti-Cy­ber­bul­ly­ing Task­force,” Mr Pow­ell said.

“The task­force is trav­el­ling the state, en­gag­ing with chil­dren, par­ents, schools, and com­mu­nity mem­bers as well as health and ed­u­ca­tion ex­perts to iden­tify com­mu­nity-driven strate­gies to re­duce cy­ber­bul­ly­ing.

“I firmly be­lieve the best way to ad­dress a com­mu­nity-wide is­sue is with com­mu­nity-wide con­sul­ta­tion.”

The task­force will rec­om­mend an an­ti­cy­ber­bul­ly­ing frame­work to by Au­gust 31. Go to qld.gov.au/cy­ber­bul­ly­ing task­force.
