It supports them in how they can safely and creatively challenge gender inequalities and oppressive gender norms, both of which are the root cause and consequence of violence against girls and women, homophobia and transphobia.

AGENDA has equality, diversity, children's rights and social justice at its heart, and supports young people's rights to speak out and engage as active citizens on issues that matter to them.

It includes a wide range of activities and resources, and links to further information, all designed so that 11-18 year olds can explore the issues they are interested in at their own pace.'
