Lead Learner’s Aspire Task 2021: Future Challenge
The release of the World Wildlife Fund’s “Living planet report 2020” makes for disturbing reading. In partnership with Sir David Attenborough’s new film “David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet” it makes clear that we are facing a huge and growing environmental crisis. In addition, the recent COVID-19 pandemic has caused many people to stop and think about the type of life they want to lead which is in harmony with the environment.
As awareness grows of the scale of the problems faced, there is a real danger that individuals feel helpless and lose hope for the future-especially young people who have played no part in causing the issues. However, change is possible, and although it will be hard work, the future can bring new opportunities and exciting developments to shape a future that is better for people and wildlife.
Lead Learner students from Years 7,8, 9 and 10 have produced work that will help drive a conversation both locally and globally about the kind of future we want, and showing people that it is a future worth working for. I hope that you enjoy their posters, speeches, poetry, videos and music, please see attachments below. You can also access the WWF future vision film that inspired this work at www.wwf.org.uk/futurevisions.
