Vivo and Media Smart team up to promote positive body image

We are now hosting some of our classroom materials on Vivo’s new, free platform so that they can be used in an interactive format. VivoMe allows teachers and students to work through educational resources online in bitesize chunks.

Sign up for free and you will automatically become a member of the Media Smart UK organisation page in VivoMe. Anytime new teaching resources get uploaded, you will be the first to know.

Throughout the campaign, we are publishing blogs about body image, advertising awareness and advice for parents and guardians about how to tackle these challenging topics on the  Vivo blog.

The facts about body image in the video show how important media literacy is for young people. Body image, social media and advertising are inextricably linked, and self-esteem issues can sometimes be generated as a result of trying to live up to ‘the perfect body ideal’. Help us give young people the education they need and gain the resilience to be body confident!
