This project is a Sierra Leonean led opportunity for young people all over the world to inspire each other to action.
While we are young, we want to learn what it means to be active democratic citizens, taking up our responsibility and our right to make our voices heard for the good of our communities and the world.
We want to learn to say and to live the ideas behind this saying:
'How can I be happy when those around me are sad?'
Each week, we will work together in our various countries and schools and locations across the world and we will share our ideas by whatever means we are able and contribute to this site so that while we learn, we inspire others!
What will the outcome be?
- A video and gallery sharing the projects of all the contributing students from across the world. We will upload all contributions to this site as they come in but we will also do some compilations so that we can share on as many education and social media platforms as possible.
- We will endeavour to incorporate your contributions as soon as you make them available to us. It is great if we are working at the same time but we prefer you to participate later than not at all.
- Any age students who are interested. We have primary, secondary and some tertiary level students.
- The questions and stimuli materials are all in English and this is largely an English based platform, however, if you are able to mediate and your students can participate and you can send us an English summary / explanation of what they did, this can still be used to inspire other learners across the world.
- We hope that our students will continue to follow up with what they have started and be in a position to report back in creative ways once more after a term or six months.
