The way a girl feels about her beauty starts with how you feel about yours. With the Dove: Legacy film we are encouraging everyone to create their own positive beauty legacy, so the girls in their lives grow up feeling confident about the way they look and reach their full potential in life. This is the mission of the Dove Self-Esteem Project, which has so far helped more than 14 million young people with body confidence education. Join us, because together we can help even more.
Get inspired by Veronika, CEO and founder of The Empowerment Plan, who empowers women to become more independent.

Instead, we're taking more than we need, and now overfishing, pollution and warming waters threaten the ocean's health. And if the ocean isn't healthy, neither are we.
So, will we continue to damage the ocean we all depend on? Or will we listen?

So will we continue to destroy our life source? Or will we listen?
