Freedom Challenge 2022


You - our rangatahi - are today’s agents of change.

Freedom Challenge is a call to action for young people across Aotearoa New Zealand. It is an opportunity for rangatahi to apply their leadership, creativity, and visions for justice by standing together against a pressing human rights issue.

Each year, we launch a campaign that is important and relevant to youth.

Freedom Challenge is held during Freedom Week. This year, these dates fall on August 8-12, however your campaign can be held at the most suitable time for you.
