Some of Iceland’s highest level political leaders have signed a joint convention against bullying.
Iceland’s Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Education and Culture, Ministry of Welfare and the City of Reykjavik are all signatories to the convention which heralds a new national campaign against bullying.
The iconic convention was signed at midday today at the Hofdi House in Reykjavik, DV reports. The ministers and the Reykjavik mayor were present to sign the document in person, and they were joined by representatives of various interested organisations and associations, who also signed.
In commemoration of the importance of the convention, all attendees were given specially made wristbands, bearing the phrase “positive communication”.
Today is anti-bullying day in Iceland, and everybody in the country is encouraged to metaphorically join hands in support of those suffering, and fighting against, bullying in all its forms.
