Online newspaper for schools The Day, together with the LEGO Group, are giving students the chance to have a say on sustainability issues and express their hopes for the future through a weekly free sustainability resource, called Build the Change Tuesday. Students debate and discuss sustainability issues in the news, then design their own innovative solutions to make a real change using creative materials or LEGO® bricks.
Last term 8-13 year olds were challenged to design sustainable human and animal habitats as part of a Build the Change Tuesday competition.
In this session, you will hear from six young winners who will showcase their designs and inspire a panel of real-life changemakers.
