ANGUS MURRAY

A year 10 student in Victoria who is passionate about seeing real action and results on key issues surrounding Body Image in young people, and to break the oppressive cycle of silence that surrounds it.

RHEA WERNER

Currently a Year 9 student from Victoria, Rhea’s passion for nutrition and eating disorder advocacy was spurred from seeing her community silently suffer, without being able to create tangible change.


Alongside Angus, Rhea is co-leading Harvard STRIPED’s advocacy in Australia to ban the use of muscle-building supplements and diet pills for adolescents and hopes the BCC Youth Advisory Committee will be able to provide youth a platform in which to contribute to change in Australian nutrition education.

 

WHAT WE DO

Advocacy and action to improve body image

SUPPORTIVE SOCIAL MEDIA

We love our socials. Let's figure out ways to make sure it is good for us, and use these opportunities to connect and share more accurate information online.

FOCUS ON FOOD

We want more real information about fuelling our bodies. Let's create new programs and resources based on what we want to know.

SKIP THE SUPPLEMENTS

Weight loss and muscle building supplements are harmful to young people. Let's take action to ensure that what gets sold is safe and effective so no one gets hurt.

GET INVOLVED

The newly formed Body Confident Collective Youth Advisory Council aims to amplify the voices of young people, and take action to make change in ways that will improve the body image of the future of Australia.


We currently meet monthly online to set up the council, and we are in the process of co-designing what this group will achieve into the future. 


You could join us to share your ideas, and work together for a brighter future.
