21st Century Challenges

21st Century Challenges21st Century Challenges is a series of thought-provoking discussions that aim to improve public understanding of, and engagement with, key regional, national and international challenges of the 21st Century.
 
Each challenge topic is available to explore through videos, articles, 60 second guides and up-to-date news articles on the 21st Century Challenges website, and all teaching resources have been created using the information and media available on the site.

The challenges cover a wide breadth of information, so the lesson plans and teaching ideas focus on one or two key points that were raised during the discussion.

The teaching resources have been created for use with A-level classes and are designed to be used as stand-alone lessons with downloadable resources and ideas.
