Current wars and crises also occupy children and young people. They are confronted almost daily with news and images that can trigger worries and fears. Schools are also called upon to talk to children and young people about war. After all, teachers are important contact persons for adolescents in addition to their parents or guardians. They can help children and young people to understand frightening news and images and thus reduce their uncertainties.

How can teachers address war and conflict in the classroom? How can they strengthen children and young people in dealing with disinformation and promote media and democratic competence? Our klicksafe info sheet provides help for educators on these and other questions.
