TWG’s International Men’s Day 2021 supported by sponsorship from Blackpool Transport will be held virtually on Saturday 20th of November.

The three core themes for International Men’s Day in the UK 2021 are:

  1. Making a positive difference to the wellbeing and lives of men and boys.
  2.  Raising awareness and/or funds for charities supporting men and boys’ wellbeing.
  3.  Promoting a positive conversation about men, manhood and masculinity.

 

The TWG event will be an opportunity to:

Raise awareness of men’s health and well-being,

Support how to be resilient.

Explore how to call out positive and diverse role models.

 

There will be 50 young men aged between 14-18 from across the Fylde coast attending. Each young man will receive a IMD resource bag filled with a variety of well being items, treats and information.

 

Each group of young men will be undertaking three awareness missions prior to the event,  involving:

Research about current mental health & well being provision Exploring  important men’s themes.

Finally each group will be producing a piece of artwork, poetry, graffiti and/or a short video.

 

The final mission is supported by Liberty’s Hotel, Blackpool.

 

We are once again working in partnership with Empowerment to raise awareness of the needs of young men across the Fylde Coast.

Our call to action for 2021, supported by The Mina Group, is asking EVERYONE to make the pledge, to show young men as a community we are here for them.

Please make the pledge and share this on your social media platforms with the hashtag #imd2021 @twguk
