BiteBack 2030’s Youth Board

2020-01-08T10:37:40+00:00

BiteBack 2030 harnesses the power of youth in the fight for healthier choices “We are all up against a flood of unhealthy food, pouring out from high streets, supermarket shelves and school canteens.  As a result, 3.3 million children are overweight and the UK has the worst childhood obesity rates in Western Europe. We can solve this and close the floodgates but we need to act now. We can stem the tide of unhealthy foods and improve the flow of affordable, healthy options for young people.” BiteBack2030 Launched this October, BiteBack2030 is led by their Youth Board - [...]

#iwill Ambassadors on the General Election

2020-01-06T14:26:03+00:00

General Election 2019: #iwill Ambassadors reflect on the power of youth voice and share their hopes and concerns for a future government 12th November 2018. Too often, young people's voices are not recognised. This is particularly true in general elections, where young people are often dismissed as unlikely to vote, and where the definition of the "youth vote" can go up to age 34. Our #iwill Ambassadors, many of whom are voting for the very first time, have been passionately putting forth their voices. From gang grooming to climate change to [...]

General Election 2019: Lanai

2020-01-06T14:24:34+00:00

The political is personal - why the vulnerable must be given a voice. On December the 12th I'll have my first chance to vote. I've been waiting for this moment since I first learned about the heroic and inspiring fight of the suffragettes over 100 years ago. I’m a full-time volunteer at Volunteering Matters, focused on the youth-led education project WASSUP (Women Against Sexual Exploitation and Violence Speak Up). In my work for WASSUP, I often think about the impact of politics, both personally as well as systemic change in society. If young women can [...]
