The Body Shop and Plan International Australia, the charity for girls’ equality, have joined forces to help launch the dreams of Australia’s future activists, leaders and change-makers, with the 2020 Youth Activist Series.

EMPOWERING YOUNG PEOPLE FIGHTING FOR EQUALITY

The Body Shop x Plan International Australia’s Youth Activist Series

As a brand that has always championed female empowerment, and with activism at its core, The Body Shop will support Plan International Australia’s Youth Activist Series (known as YAS), by donating $120,000 to support the entire 12 month program, to empower young people who are fighting for equality.



THE 2020 YAS LEADERS

Nine remarkable Australian young women have been announced as the 2020 YAS leaders, an incredible group committed to creating long-lasting social change and fighting for equality, human rights and the environment. Throughout the program, the 2020 Youth Activists will learn essential activism and leadership skills and get involved in advocacy and campaigning, media and public speaking, and collective action to fight for equality.

ABOUT OUR PARTNER: PLAN INTERNATIONAL AUSTRALIA

WHO ARE WE?

Put simply, we’re the charity for girls’ equality. We tackle the root causes of poverty, support communities through crisis, campaign for gender equality, and help governments do what’s right for children and particularly for girls. We believe a better world is possible. An equal world; a world where all children can live happy and healthy lives, and where girls can take their rightful place as equals.
