Today was the first meeting of the RIC Economics ‘Climate Council’. A group of 10 A-Level Economics students are entering the prestigious Financial Times Core Economics School Challange. This is an international competition. The self-proclaimed ‘Cimate Council’ are required to produce a short video entitled ‘Why is addressing climate change so difficult?’ The group must apply their economic studies to the problem of climate change. It’s a tall order! The judges are looking for excellent economics, and an innovative video. Lucky we have just the team! We will keep you posted on their progress.
Four young filmmakers have been nominated for The Team Award for their work on the short film, ‘Fair Share Note’ that won a recognition trophy in the Bank of England Film Competition.
Scarlett, Maia, Neziah and Libby, all from Year 7, were nominated by Medway Youth Councillor and fellow RIC student Anna McGovern who said “together, they worked so hard to produce this film and I believe that their efforts should be recognised on a local community scale. They came together to create an innovative film in recognition of those with less financial security, which I believe that some may be able to relate to in their lives.”
We look forward to seeing the next thought provoking movie the girls create!
