White Ribbon Campaign Report 2012
April 23, 2013
Chris Green, Executive Director for the White Ribbon Campaign UK visited New Zealand earlier this year and had this to say.
‘I see the New Zealand White Ribbon Campaign as taking the prevention agenda another step on the way to creating a world of respectful loving relationships. I will take lessons from your work back with me to improve our own activities in the UK.
While being a tourist in Franz Josef Glacier and in Westport I was delighted and inspired to see people wearing white ribbons and shops with white ribbon window displays, and to meet individuals, who, when I asked them, knew all about the campaign and the importance of engaging men to challenge violence against women.
Everywhere I visited there were ribbons and evidence of a campaign that reached right into the heart of communities.
This engagement is a testament to your well organised campaign and it was inspiring to meet with the White Ribbon Campaign Team and share ideas. I look forward to the opportunity to co-operate more closely in the future’.Chris Green Executive Director White Ribbon Campaign UK
