The initiative is seeking to increase education and awareness about female health and menstruation in physical activity, while working to address period poverty. It will focus on reducing barriers and stigma around menstruation, providing information for adults supporting young people to be physically active, and empowering rangatahi to make informed decisions about their health and wellbeing while staying active.
Here are some great resources available as part of the Flow On Effect:

Go with the Flow resources
A collection of menstruation and rainbow-inclusive practices for the outdoors, these resources are designed to support young people with periods to be active – with confidence.
Everyone should be able to enjoy the great outdoors but the lack of information about how people can manage their periods in the outdoors is a big part of the problem – so this resource has been created to help people to understand the different ways people experience periods, and the difficulties people face when having them in the outdoors, so we can build a more positive and supportive environment for everyone.
