For Learners

There are lots of ways that young people can become involved in taking action as Future Makers. The United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals provide a really useful framework for thinking about the range of areas that could be focused on. 

When young people engage in social action there is a double benefit. Young people benefit themselves through the knowledge, skills and real-life experiences they gain. This has a positive impact on their character, sense of well-being, employability and even academic results. The other benefit, of course, is the impact on the particular issue or concern that is being addressed.

The resources below provide links to a number of project ideas or actual projects that are ready to be engaged with by learners in our schools.
