World leaders are meeting in Glasgow this November to make decisions about the future of our planet and its people. Find out how you can Go Green this Harvest to support communities protecting the Amazon and to stand up for people dealing with the climate crisis.
This year has been challenging for everyone. Again and again we have seen children and young people rise to the challenge. They have continued to look out for our global neighbours by joining our national assemblies, taking part in Walk for Water and writing messages to human rights defenders.
With children and young people now back at school and settling into a new normal, Julia Corcoran – Leadership Development Coordinator at CAFOD – discusses our third national assembly on 8 October, and how small actions can transform the lives of millions of people this Harvest.
Many children, young people and schools rose to the challenge and saw this summer as a chance to take action, to fundraise and turn this summer into a hopeful one for many around the world, writes Julia Corcoran, Leadership Development Coordinator at CAFOD. But this challenge isn’t done now that September has arrived, and with our second national assembly happening this month we want you to get involved.
The enthusiasm and passion of CAFOD’s Young Leaders is inspiring, not just to their peers, but also to their wider communities. Despite all of the challenges this year they stepped up to the challenge of making this a summer of hope. Sinead Callaghan, CAFOD’s Young Leadership Co-ordinator, reveals what they’ve been doing.
As children and young people prepare to go back to school, Sinead Callaghan, CAFOD’s Young Leadership Coordinator, and Susan Kambalu, CAFOD’s Secondary Inset Coordinator, take a moment to reflect on what the coronavirus pandemic has taught us about education and what we can look forward to this year.
CAFOD’s Summer of Hope has inspired children and young people, and their families, to recreate the events they missed this summer, to have fun and to raise funds for our Coronavirus Appeal. Kathleen O’Brien describes how the Education team are taking the insights we gained during lockdown into the new academic year.
