As part of the 2008 AWARE Beauty Redefined Campaign, AWARE developed a workshop for teenagers to raise awareness on body image, encourage broader definitions of beauty, and promote healthy habits in exercise, eating and self love.The Beauty Redefined Campaign and this workshop were conceived in response to decreasing self-esteems among Singaporeans. Research has found that 1 in 2 Singaporean teens believes she or he is too fat; 8 in 10 want to change the way they look; and 1 in 5 would consider plastic surgery. Such attitudes have both short-term and long-term consequences on the mental and physical health of our population.The Beauty Redefined Workshop aims to:
- Expand students’ definitions of ‘beauty’;
- Reveal how media contributes to our unhealthy body image;
- Increase understanding of consequences of negative body image; and
- Teach students how to lead a healthy lifestyle, both physically through nutrition and exercise and mentally through loving oneself.
Duration: 2 hours
Target Market: Adolescents
Minimum 20 pax
