Building communities through youth social action 

Four years on from the launch of the #iwill campaign, the UK faces even greater challenges than it did in 2013. We remain clear that social action and supporting young people to change their communities and themselves, is a uniquely powerful way of building a more integrated, socially mobile and healthier society.

So during #iwill Week 2017 (November 20-24) we want you to help us celebrate young people who lead social action and their capacity for bringing others together.  The week marks the fourth anniversary of the campaign and is all about shining a light on the impact that young people are having, as well as the great work of the 700+ #iwill partners who’ve pledged to create more social action opportunities.

In 2016 hundreds of partners got involved – in all there were 183 #iwill celebrations across the week. Activities were all shapes and sizes – have a look here for ideas on how you can Amplify, Grow or Go Big with your celebration. We’ve developed a range of other resources below – please do make use of them. (There is a set of similar resources created for partners running activity in Scotland here). 

As soon as you’re ready, upload your event to the #iwillWeek map – it’s quick and easy to do. Add your event early to be sure you receive an #iwill celebration pack, including wrist-bands, selfie-frames, balloons and a few other surprises.

If you have any queries or suggestions regarding #iwillWeek 2017 we’d love to hear from you – send an email to Dominic or Sam. Thanks so much for your continued support and good luck with your planning.
