About this resource

This free education resource has been developed based on films submitted in 2021 to the British Council’s ‘Climate action – school video competition’.

Schools around the world made videos in 2021 reporting their work in sustainability, and this video rounds up the ten best videos submitted to the British Council. This showcase of young people’s environmental actions shows students from the Philippines to Ethiopia and from Nigeria to Ukraine engaged in a range of projects in their communities, each with a goal such as reducing climate change or increasing biodiversity.

The video is approximately 5.30 minutes, comes with a full set of teaching and student resources for a 65-minute ELT lesson themed on taking action on environmental issues, and is in English graded at CEFR level B1.

The British Council’s Climate Connection is a global initiative, uniting people around the world to meet the climate challenge.
