Learn more about the campaign

#whyichoose is a youth-led community health promotion campaign, developed by the Youth Solutions Youth Advisory Group members with the guidance of the Youth Solutions staff.

The campaign identifies tobacco smoking as an issue of concern for young people and aims to start a positive conversation about the benefits of not smoking or making safer decisions around smoking, such as cutting down or having a smoke-free home environment. The #whyichoose campaign aims to raise awareness about the health impacts of tobacco smoking and the benefits of tobacco cessation.

Through the #whyichoose campaign, people are encouraged to post and share social media content about the positive choices they make in relation to smoking. By using the hashtag #whyichoose the social media content of individuals then filters through to the main feed on the campaign website, contributing to the positive conversation.
