Rise Up to Reboot the Future - an e-book by Jonathon Porritt
Rise Up to Reboot the Future tells the story of the next five years, with a particular focus on the Climate Emergency, and how young people can play a role in transforming the world into a fairer and more sustainable place.
Jonathon Porritt describes it as: “A just about plausible imagining of how the world finally gets to grips with the Climate Emergency by 2025 – largely thanks to the courage and creativity of young people”.
The accompanying companion guide is designed to support groups reading Rise Up to Reboot the Future. It can also be a useful companion for solo readers who want to dive deeper into the topics and themes that emerge.
Part of the "How Will You Reboot the Future?" Campaign
This e-book and companion guide are designed to help teachers begin to introduce conversations about climate action into the classroom in a way that is positive, empowering, and adaptable to suit the needs of individual teachers and students as they navigate the transition back to school.
They sit alongside a series of 5 short films, each with an accompanying teaching guide. These resources flexibly slot into tutor group sessions or any gaps in the timetable, allowing teachers to spark conversations with their students and find space in the day to stop and consider how our actions now can make a real difference in the future.
These materials are also suitable outside of classroom contexts, including youthwork, uniformed groups, Duke of Edinburgh, Youth Parliament meetings, Student council/ Pupil council meetings and more.
