EDUCATING FOR TRICKY CONVERSATIONS
Hi Friend,

If you are a regular subscriber, you may have noticed something different this year. We are dropping into your inbox more regularly! (And this update is a little longer than usual but with excellent reason).

In 2021, we want to make sure that schools and child & youth focussed organisations have all the help they need to promote safe & healthy relationships free from tech & sexualised harms (which incidentally, is our new tagline!)

Allow me to share the BIG reason for this sudden change. For the past 4-5 years, I was contributing to two other incredible projects. The first was eChildhood. From mid-2015 onwards, I began a journey to c0-found what was initially, P0rn Harms Kids and then renamed. At present, eChildhood is the only not-for-profit organisation in Australia to adopt and mobilise a public health response to address p0rnography impacts for the safety and wellbeing of children and young people. I moved on from eChildhood in March 2020.

Additionally, at the beginning of 2017, I began a four-year journey with Culture Reframed as Director of Health Education. Based in the US, Culture Reframed is the first health promotion effort to recognize and address p0rnography as the public health crisis of the digital age. I was honoured to work alongside the team to design, contribute to, develop and launch the Culture Reframed Parents Program–a free online complete best-practice toolkit to help parents raise p0rn-resilient kids. This journey has now drawn to a close. If you haven't yet seen the Parents Program, I encourage you to check out this brilliant resource and recommend it to parents in your networks.

Besides various consultancy work, I have one other significant international project I'm involved with ongoing–Connecting to Protect. I'll share more about this in another update in the coming weeks. As you can imagine, these THREE BIG commitments AND Youth Wellbeing Project, meant that I was often spread somewhat thin.

All this to say, I couldn't be happier! In 2021, I am now able to sow my energies into you–and of course, our outstanding team. Our presenters–Meg in Brisbane, Asha in New Zealand–and Chanel with writing more curriculum. More units of IQ PROGRAMS will reach classrooms in Australia, New Zealand and further afield globally. More online student and parent workshops and professional development. And more practical resources. 

Imagine! This extra energy and focus mean that LOTS of exceptional education solutions are heading your way. And all this creativity results in children and young people in your care being better equipped to have safe & healthy relationships free from tech & sexualised harms!

So please take the time to check out our website with its complete makeover! I'll add a few of our favourite links below. Plus, this week we launched another blog update–part of our new Interesting Studies Feed which makes research related to p0rn, sexualised media, and tech harms more accessible to schools and child & youth services! 

2021 is BIG for Youth Wellbeing Project, which means it is BIG for you as we do our VERY best to bring you updates EVERY week. 

A final word–if this regular burst of goodness is too much for you, please don't leave us! Send me a quick email, and I can include you to receive either my Liz Walker Presents or P0rn Resilient Kids updates, which I promise you, are far less frequent but still packed with great info.


Till next time, be well and stay inspired.
