Ambassador, Pearson World Changer Awards
Record-breaking polar explorers, wildlife campaigners, philanthropic entrepreneurs and creatives, are sharing their journeys to inspire your pupils to make a positive difference in the world.
This is all part of the Pearson World Changer Awards, which are about empowering and celebrating today’s young pioneers and global citizens.
Applications close on Friday 23rd October, so there’s plenty of time to inspire your children to make a positive impact on the people and world around them, or celebrate those who are already leaving their mark.
Whether it’s a unique way to say thank you to key workers over lockdown, helping with the recycling or a passion to help their community, make sure you enter your pupils into the awards for a chance to be crowned ‘World Changers’.
To find out more about the awards, and how to enter, visit the World Changers website.
