Across the world, young people face pressures that stop them reaching their full potential. Everyday life bombards them with the ‘Image Myth’ – the idea that they must look a certain way to be beautiful.
Take part in the Action on Body Confidence programme
Action on Body Confidence is a co-educational programme for young people aged 7 - 25 which supports young people to plan and run their own body confidence advocacy projects. Through exciting and engaging age-appropriate activities, they identify the biggest body confidence issues in their community, and work together to plan a project that doesn’t only raise awareness, but is true advocacy, asking decision makers for change.
