In a time where trolling online can be the answer the global fame – take the current US president for example, it’s a really difficult landscape to navigate for humans that might not immediately understand the implications of their actions. I know it’s hard to sometimes control your temper, especially when there is such an apparent us versus them dichotomy in society, but this campaign really sets in motion the most simplest of philosophies… Be Cool, Be Nice.
Earlier today, I had the honour of joining the team at Be Cool, Be Nice at no less than the House of Lords with Princess Beatrice and my childhood role model June Sarong for the launch of the book and interactive manual that aims to conquer cyber bullying by spreading love, creativity and positivity.
Dsquared2, Kendall Jenner and Kylie Minogue are all part of the campaign and today’s event with British Royalty proves how seriously this is being taken, particularly as it has a style angle which we often get judged for when it comes to charity initiatives in conjunction with the fashion industry. Congratulations to everyone involved.
BE COOL BE NICE (BCBN) is a global movement sparked by one teen’s struggle and flamed by the staggering fact that one in five young people will be a victim of cyber bullying. Adopted by celebrities, style icons, artists and leaders across the globe BCBN has grown from a rallying cry into a multi-media collaboration to encourage the use of social media in a positive and proactive way and to advocate good manners on and offline.
