Through a compilation of articles, news, poetry and youth photojournalism projects, the 99% Campaign Magazine, provides a platform for young people to express their stories, views and experiences about issues affecting their daily lives, with the intention of stimulating social action, and influencing key public figures in the media and governments. This entirely youth-led and youth focused work represents their real voices and their aspirations to create a fairer future for themselves and their peers from diverse backgrounds.
"The third Issue could not have been more timely. It is published at a time when the UK's ties with its EU family are being questioned. Hate crimes towards young people and minorities have reached unprecedented levels while there is no longer a UK government department with youth policy responsibility. As the founder of a user-led social policy think-tank, I continue to believe that true change happens from the bottom up and not through formalised structures of decision making. Despite the difficult financial environment and the resistance of institutions, civil society and young people have the power to mobilise and bring relevant figures to account."
Dr. Theo Gavrielides - Founder & Director of the IARS International Institute.
"Freedom of expression is only worth something if it is exercised, and for that there must be the platforms to allow you to meaningfully do so."
