THAT SUGAR FILM AMBASSADORS!

That Sugar Film Ambassadors are passionate individuals who recognise the impact of diet on health and care deeply about sharing the key messages of That Sugar Film far and wide around Australia and New Zealand.

These 30 Ambassadors are formal representatives of That Sugar Film who have the knowledge, skills, attributes and determination to help members of their local community critically evaluate their own dietary habits and make the necessary changes to lower their sugar consumption.

Our Ambassador program equips them with a rich toolkit of resources to engage their local communities through a range of activities including the following:

• Community, school and workplace screenings
• Participating in Q&A panels
• Engaging schools with our school’s program and School Action Toolkit
• Helping our Activated schools become healthier environments
• Facilitating workshops and cooking classes
• Raising funds for the Mai Wiru Sugar Challenge Foundation
• Other activities initiated by individual Ambassadors

Each Ambassador is profiled below. Please explore who is active in your area and get in touch with them directly (you can filter them by country, state or focus area).

A message from Damon.

All of us involved with That Sugar Film have been overwhelmed with the response to the film and the various programs that have continued its momentum. Now we are ready to take the low-sugar message even further into the community!
