Price Tag

It’s the inequality, stupid.

Price Tag is a 40 minute powerhouse of a show for teenage audiences.

Price Tag takes a satirical swipe at the corporate world of fast food and touches on themes of health, exercise, protest, democracy and the people’s right to green spaces.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

  • Reducing health inequalities is a matter of fairness and social justice
  • Highest priority: Children
  • What happens in early years (starting in the womb) has life-long effects on health and well-being.
  • Educational achievement brings with it a whole range of achievements including better employment, income and physical and mental health
  • Being in employment is protective of health
  • Unemployment contributes to poor health
  • Having insufficient money to lead a healthy life is a highly significant cause of health inequalities
  • Policies which would help mitigate climate change would also help reduce health inequalities – for instance more walking, cycling and green spaces
  • Britain’s obesity epidemic can be partly blamed on lack of green spaces in cities
  • Clear link between housing density, lack of open spaces and public health in the most populated cities in England
  • Social support within and between communities is critical to physical and mental well-being
