Alongside our 2021/22 Global Learning Wall Planner - 10 Ways to Reboot the Future - we’re releasing a series of monthly classroom resources.
Each of our class activity resources explores a different focus for creating a more sustainable and compassionate future, based on the 10 Big Shifts in Jonathon Porritt’s Rise Up to Reboot the Future.
The activities are adaptable for all age ranges and can be used as standalone activities for tutor group sessions or can slot into a lesson.
Rebooting Social Justice
This month’s class activity explores October’s theme of social justice. Students are asked to form a circle and pass a ball of wool or string between them as they consider some of the injustices happening in the world right now. They are then asked to reflect on the way in which we are all connected, and can all work together to support each other.
New this year: monthly challenges
Every month we will be setting a series of challenges – complete one or more of the challenges as a whole class, or choose 2 or 3 pupils to complete one each month over the course of the year.
To win a bundle of books for your class – all linked to this month’s theme - simply post a photo of your class’s completed challenge on social media before the end of September 2021, and tag @globaldimension for the chance to win.
Every month you can download and print a copy of a poster featuring the month's discussion question and a beautiful illustration by artist Eliz Underhill.
