Global Acts of Unity launches ‘Unitees’ aged 14 - 18 student competition

07 Jun 2021

Set up by Mike Haines OBE in honour of his brother David who was killed by Daesh in 2014, Global Acts of Unity tours the UK speaking to young people to encourage them to spread messages of tolerance and understanding in defiance of extremist narratives that seek to create community division.

Youth-focused tolerance campaign, Global Acts of Unity (GAU), has launched a creative competition, Unitees. It asks young people aged 14-18 from across the country to express what unity means to them by designing a t-shirt. By entering, students can also win prizes towards their school and studies.

The competition closes on 18 June 2021 and is run in association with the National Association for Teaching English (NATE).

The competition is now open for submissions from schools, with supporting toolkits available for teachers to facilitate classroom learning on issues relating to extremism and division. On the Unitees website, students can take advantage of a free t-shirt making tool to create their designs. You can get your school contacts involved by sharing this information and sending them to the Unitees website.
