We are a non-profit association created in 2016 to end bullying in Portugal, through Empathy. Our Vision is creating a country without bullying, where all youth feels happy and safe. We work with schools to provide them with the necessary tools to prevent, stop, and resolve bullying among students.

Since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have created an online campaign called “BE KIND ONLINE” to empower high school and university students to use their voices to stop cyberbullying.

We all have a role to play
With just ten years to go, an ambitious global effort is underway to deliver the 2030 promise. We want to take a stand and we are calling on our community to showcase how they are contributing to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, whilst influencing more and more people to unravel their role to play.
Here, you will find four different ways your ideas can flourish, dialogue can be enhanced, and action can take place. You can choose one or all four, and Nova SBE will be there to support you all the way and guarantee tangible change.
We all have a role to play, and this is your way in.
