Together with Reboot the future, we’re calling on all educators of 14-18 year olds to ignite their students’ sense of optimism, tap into their imagination and creativity, and inspire them with positive and personal ways of engaging in climate action.

The ‘How will you reboot the future’ campaign features a series of short films – following the lives of five young people who, over the next five years, each play a role in rebooting the future. These films were inspired by a book written by environmental activist Jonathon Porritt, which will be included as a resource, alongside a set of teaching guides to help you to support discussion in your classrooms.

Based on the book, an accompanying suite of five ‘Rise Up’ films tell the story of five young people as they describe the positive life choices they make in 2021, which make it possible for them to help shape a fairer, more sustainable world.

Each film is designed to be watched individually or as part of whole, and are supported by a dedicated school resources pack, freely available to download  now. 

The full suite of resources includes:

  • Five short films (each 5-7 minutes long), which follow five young people from 2021 to 2025
  • Jonathon Porritt’s latest e-bookRise Up to Reboot the Futurewritten specifically for this campaign
  • Five teaching guides to support the films, providing discussion ideas, related resources and connections between the films and the e-book.
  • A book club companion guide to Rise Up to Reboot the Future, to support students in reading and discussing Jonathon Porritt’s inspirational and hope-filled new book.
