The world is waking up to the fact that society is arranged to benefit some more than others. There is much that needs changing. And you can be the one to do it. Anyone can make history, including a teenager launching a global campaign from their bedroom. And Amika will show you how, in this essential and inspirational step-by-step guide to being an activist.

Are your favourite brands making little effort to be diverse?

Are the people who’ve been hardest hit by COVID-19 not getting the support they need?

Is the environment being overlooked in favour of driving profits?
