ACS International School Egham (@ACSEgham) has announced that naturalist, TV presenter and campaigner, Chris Packham (@ChrisGPackham), will headline its new sustainability event, ‘The world needs…Climate change challengers’.

Taking place in-person and live-streamed globally on Tuesday 9 November, 7.00-8.20pm (GMT), ‘The world needs…Climate change challengers’ will highlight how people can contribute to climate change solutions and, ultimately, help build a more sustainable future.

Chris Packham will be addressing the audience via live-streamto speak about his experience in conservation and campaigning, providing inspiration to all peoplewho are passionate about conversation issues and injustices.

Chris will be followed by a scientist whose day-to-day work is to develop solutions to an area of climate change. They will discuss their pathway to their career today, and will highlight the steps young people can take now to become a climate change challenger in their future.

Jeremy Lewis, Head of School, ACS Egham, comments:

“Every single day climate change poses a new threat to our planet. If we do nothing, it is going to catch up with us much sooner than we think. Today’s students are preparing for their lives and careers in this unpredictable future, but what tools do they need to, firstly, be happy and successful and, secondly, contribute to a sustainable future world?

“During ‘The world needs… Climate change challengers’ students, parents and members of the community interested in climate action will hear how science gives us a greater insight into the impact of climate change and also presents opportunities for solutions, while discovering how students can apply what they are learning in school today to making a positive impact in their futures.”

ACS Egham has received the Eco-Schools silver award due to its curriculum links to environmental issues, as well as the wide range of sustainability initiatives in place across the campus – from enhanced systems to reduce water consumption, to organised waste management.  Home to 600 students, aged 4 to 18, the school also runs a ‘Jaguars in Action’ initiative which sees students aged 11-18 coming together to discuss key environmental issues and arrange activities like nature walks, litter collections and wild bee hive making.

‘The world needs… Climate change challengers’ is the first in ACS International Schools' new series of ‘What the World Needs’ events, which this year focuses on building a sustainable future. Throughout the series of four compelling hybrid events – each hosted by one of ACS’s schools in Egham, Cobham, Hillingdon and Doha, Qatar – attendees will discover the skills and attributes young people need to successfully contribute to SDGs: Climate Action; Responsible Consumption; and Good Health and Wellbeing.

The new ‘What the World Needs’ series follows a successful launch series in 2020, with speakers including Sian Sutherland, Co-Founder, A Plastic Planet, and Michael Sheldrick of Global Citizen.

 ‘The world needs… Climate change challengers’ will be hosted at ACS Egham’s campus and will be live streamed globally.

Our specialisation is providing you with a mixture of the latest education news, our stance is always positive, sector building and sharing different perspectives and views from thought leaders, to provide you with a think tank of new ideas and solutions to bring the education sector together and come up with new innovative solutions and ideas.

Every week FE News has over 200 articles and new pieces of content per week. We are a news channel providing the latest Further Education News, giving insight from multiple sources on the latest education policy developments, latest strategies, through to our thought leaders who provide blue sky thinking strategy, best practice and innovation to help look into the future developments for education and the future of work.

In Jan 2021, FE News had over 173,000 unique visitors according to Google Analytics and over 200 new pieces of news content every week, from thought leadership articles, to the latest education news via written word, podcasts, video to press releases from across the sector, putting us in the top 2,000 websites in the UK.

We thought it would be helpful to explain how we tier our latest education news content and how you can get involved and understand how you can read the latest daily Further Education news and how we structure our FE Week of content:

Main Features

Our main features are exclusive and are thought leadership articles and blue sky thinking with experts writing peer to peer news articles about the future of education and the future of work. The focus is solution led thought leadership, sharing best practice, innovation and emerging strategy. These are often articles about the future of education and the future of work, they often then create future education news articles. We limit our main features to a maximum of 20 per week, as they are often about new concepts and new thought processes. Our main features are also exclusive articles responding to the latest education news, maybe an insight from an expert into a policy announcement or response to an education think tank report or a white paper.

FE Voices

FE Voices was originally set up as a section on FE News to give a voice back to the sector. As we now have over 3,000 newsrooms and contributors, FE Voices are usually thought leadership articles, they don’t necessarily have to be exclusive, but usually are, they are slightly shorter than Main Features. FE Voices can include more mixed media with the Further Education News articles, such as embedded podcasts and videos. Our sector response articles asking for different comments and opinions to education policy announcements or responding to a report of white paper are usually held in the FE Voices section. If we have a live podcast in an evening or a radio show such as SkillsWorldLive radio show, the next morning we place the FE podcast recording in the FE Voices section.

Sector News

In sector news we have a blend of content from Press Releases, education resources, reports, education research, white papers from a range of contributors. We have a lot of positive education news articles from colleges, awarding organisations and Apprenticeship Training Providers, press releases from DfE to Think Tanks giving the overview of a report, through to helpful resources to help you with delivering education strategies to your learners and students.

Podcasts

We have a range of education podcasts on FE News, from hour long full production FE podcasts such as SkillsWorldLive in conjunction with the Federation of Awarding Bodies, to weekly podcasts from experts and thought leaders, providing advice and guidance to leaders. FE News also record podcasts at conferences and events, giving you one on one podcasts with education and skills experts on the latest strategies and developments.

We have over 150 education podcasts on FE News, ranging from EdTech podcasts with experts discussing Education 4.0 and how technology is complimenting and transforming education, to podcasts with experts discussing education research, the future of work, how to develop skills systems for jobs of the future to interviews with the Apprenticeship and Skills Minister.

We record our own exclusive FE News podcasts, work in conjunction with sector partners such as FAB to create weekly podcasts and daily education podcasts, through to working with sector leaders creating exclusive education news podcasts.

Education Video Interviews

FE News have over 700 FE Video interviews and have been recording education video interviews with experts for over 12 years. These are usually vox pop video interviews with experts across education and work, discussing blue sky thinking ideas and views about the future of education and work.

Events

FE News has a free events calendar to check out the latest conferences, webinars and events to keep up to date with the latest education news and strategies.

FE Newsrooms

The FE Newsroom is home to your content if you are a FE News contributor. It also help the audience develop relationship with either you as an individual or your organisation as they can click through and ‘box set’ consume all of your previous thought leadership articles, latest education news press releases, videos and education podcasts.

Do you want to contribute, share your ideas or vision or share a press release?

If you want to write a thought leadership article, share your ideas and vision for the future of education or the future of work, write a press release sharing the latest education news or contribute to a podcast, first of all you need to set up a FE Newsroom login (which is free): once the team have approved your newsroom (all content, newsrooms are all approved by a member of the FE News team- no robots are used in this process!), you can then start adding content (again all articles, videos and podcasts are all approved by the FE News editorial team before they go live on FE News). As all newsrooms and content are approved by the FE News team, there will be a slight delay on the team being able to review and approve content.
