    Her Body. Her Choice.

    Women’s bodies are political. Might sound like a big statement but women’s sexuality and fertility have historically been subjected to control by individual men, family and even by the state. Attached to sexual and reproductive health there is a culture of shame. Lack of awareness and resources prevent a world where all have the right to take charge of their own bodies and health.

    Stop future coal mine

    Support a crucial climate case in Australia. A decision to approve a new mine came only weeks after IPCC's latest report stressing the urgent need to stop burning coal. We won a historic victory in court, holding the minister accountable for children’s exposure to coal emissions, but the government still continues to approve coal mines. Help spread the word to hold decision makers accountable.

    Your body does not belong to anybody

    In many parts of the world, discussions of sexuality and reproductive health are considered as a taboo. Many young people including young LGBTIQ+, women and girls are also denied access to information and support that would enable them to protect themselves. Let’s build a world where people have equal rights to sexual and reproductive health, including access to family planning, HIV and STI health care services. Share these campaign placards to start the conversation!

    Save the amazon rainforest

    The Amazon rainforest is one of the key elements in the fight against climate change. However, Amazonian people have no space in the public discussion. It is therefore important to empower youth Amazonian voices.​ As co-founder of Fridays for Future Amazônia, I urge you to get involved and stay updated.

    Re-write the story of Somalia

    I am part of a generation with a need to define our country and ourselves beyond an armed conflict — to debate, collaborate and sustain Somalia's new narrative and identity, told by Somali youth. When sharing stories of everyday people in Somalia, you're part of looking at the world from another perspective. Storytelling can be a powerful tool for change and important for us living in a conflict when turning the tide towards peace and economic growth.

    Buy second hand

    Switching to buy local or second hand can help reduce the energy and resources that go into creating and shipping clothing. There could be a higher environmental cost hidden behind low price-tag on fast fashion. Invest in clothes that will last longer or give new life to clothes by buying second hand.
