Rebooting the Future

Contains 3 items

Created by

It’s a new school year, and alongside our latest Global Learning Wall Planner - 10 Ways to Reboot the Future - we’re releasing our new 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.

This month’s class activity explores September’s theme of rebooting the future. Students are asked to imagine that they are living on the Earth in the year 2121 – 100 years from now, and to use their imagination to write a letter of gratitude and hope from the future.

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.

Downloadable poster

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.
