You often feel powerless against bullying, but even a “hello” can be encouraging. This is what the # SayHi campaign is about, in which children from Europe stand up against exclusion and for friendship. Singer Stefanie Heinzmann is also there.

Every tenth child in Switzerland is affected by bullying. The SRF, as part of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), is campaigning against this with the #SayHi campaign. The message: A simple “hello” can make others feel good and be the beginning of a friendship.

Music and movement also connect people. That is why the anthem of the # SayHi campaign is the song «Dynamit». Stefanie Heinzmann sings the song in the Valais dialect for Switzerland. The singer herself was bullyed as a teenager, so this action is an affair of the heart for her. Together with 80 school children she rehearsed the dance to the song and shot a music video that is also available in sign language.
