It began with current and former high school students telling their stories of being bullied.
And Premier Christy Clark told attendees the enviroment inside schools needs to shift away from putting up with bullies.

Education Minister Don McRae says new online reporting tools are now in place.
He says teachers are also undergoing specialized training.
The "Erase Bullying" summit will continue for the rest of the day.
