In this short one-hour webinar, representatives from Schools of Sanctuary and Oxfam Education will look at ways in which schools can facilitate and develop student voice and leadership in sanctuary activities, a key part in being recognised as a School of Sanctuary

Drawing on a practical resource and guidance developed by Oxfam, John McLaverty, Youth Campaigner at Oxfam Campaigns will present on the strategies and approaches teachers can use to encourage ethically informed student efforts.

Teachers from a number of Schools of Sanctuary will then outline examples of how they have employed these techniques with their students and what students have achieved as a result.

Come along to be inspired, connect with other Schools of Sanctuary and learn some practical activities you might wish to adopt with your students!
