A community of educators empowering students to take climate action

Values Challenge for Schools

The Values Challenge is a one-hour workshop designed to highlight the importance of values to your school and to help bring those values to life. The focus is on how your students can improve and maintain their wellbeing – health and happiness – at school.


The three steps in the workshop for students are:  

  • Choose one important personal value that they wish to strengthen when at school, and in doing so, increase wellbeing. 
  • Commit to one action they can take with others to put their chosen values into practice in what they do. 
  • Plan next steps for when and how they do (or start doing) these actions. 


The workshop is designed to be easy to organise, highly motivating and effective.
