2018 Campaign Champions

Calling all Year 9 and 10 teachers – we’re on the lookout for Campaign Champions!

Do you, and your students, care about ensuring every child across the world gets a quality education? Do you know some outstanding young people who want to use their voices to campaign for change? Passionate about global learning? Want to learn new skills? Excited by learning beyond the classroom? Then this is the programme for your school!

2021 is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to transform education and unlock children’s futures. With the UK’s co-hosting of the replenishment meeting of the Global Partnership for Education and COP26, and its presidency of the G7.

In 2021 we will be campaigning to create more resilient and inclusive education systems and build back better from the pandemic.

The Send My Friend to School campaign is looking for Year 9 & 10 students to join our exciting and established Campaign Champions programme.

What does being a Campaign Champion involve?

– Teachers and students take part in bespoke campaign training starting March 2021

– Use what you learn to take the campaign message to the heart of government, meeting with MPs, Ministers and other high-level figures

– Be a champion for the Send My Friend to School campaign within your school and wider community by running local action and events
