After two weeks, eight universities and almost 1,300 miles, our Activista Tour has come to an end. We travelled across the UK with three amazing Activistas from Zambia to talk to students about the global movement for tax justice and inspire new Activistas into taking creative actions.

Activista is ActionAid’s global youth network. Together, we’re fighting to end poverty.

We are demanding justice and changing the world through rallies, gigs, MP lobbies, street theatre and flash mobs.
