Support Jamie Oliver and his mission to take action against the role sugar is playing in rising global health problems. The One Young World Counsellor is advocating for a revolution in our relationship with food. You can watch his documentary 'Sugar Rush' on Channel 4 at 9pm (BST) on Thursday 3 September.
Jamie is leading a campaign to introduce a 7p levy on sugary drinks per regular-sized can of soft drink with added sugar. This has the potential to generate £1 billion per year. The movement believe this crucial revenue should be ring-fenced to support much needed preventative strategies in the UK Naional Health Service and schools around childhood obesity and diet-related disease.

"This year my team and I started looking into sugar consumption and what we found led me to film a TV documentary that shows just how devastating the effects of consuming too much sugar can be. I have witnessed enough to give me a solid determination that we have to take action." - Jamie Oliver, One Young World Counsellor
