student explaining an idea

There are plenty of ways in which you can address a particular issue within your local school or community that you feel passionately about. We’ve provided you with a few ideas below.

Within your school:

Run an awareness campaign - use posters, bulletin boards, the school newspaper to spread the message.

Get your Student Representative Council involved.

Make a presentation at your school assembly. 

Run a survey to get the views of others on the issue.

Hold a Human Rights Day at your local school

Within your community:

Raise the issue with your local media.


Hold an event and invite guest speakers from the community to discuss and debate the issues.

Organise a meeting with your local Member of Parliament.

Set up a stall in the local shopping centre to share information (get the appropriate permission, of course)
