Coinciding with the one year anniversary of the 2011 riots, Reverse Riots is a Do Something UK campaign set up to empower young people to create a wave of positivity towards British youth.

A number of stars, including singer Paloma Faith, have donated their Twitter profiles to the cause. British prime minister David Cameron has also given his support to the campaign.

By recording and sharing all the amazing things you do for your community, you can help create an online visual gallery of positive messages and imagery to counteract the negativity young people endured amid last summer’s riots.

Despite the fact that rioting was carried out by people of all age groups, the 2011 riots were a catalyst for an onslaught of negative coverage of young people that has been simmering under the surface for years.
