Welcome to Body Banter

A project aiming to empower young people to advocate for change in the conversation about body image.

We believe that advocacy is empowerment. We believe that taking concrete action to create positive change is the key to making the world a more accepting and safe space for everyBODY. And we believe that young people should take the lead.

Through providing a platform for students around the world to share their unique stories and perspectives, and opportunities for them to work together as a global community to brainstorm ways of advocating for positive change, the Body Banter project empowers young people to be the force behind changing the conversation about body image and to work towards creating an accepting and safe space for all.

Your story matters.

Acknowledging our lived experiences is a powerful act. Calling out diet culture messages that have been normalized can help us conquer them. Sharing our unique experiences can show others that they are not alone.

Explore our community space and see for yourself the strength that lies in solidarity and shared struggles.
