This is a powerful little vid put together by 14 year old Alec from California. It's for young people by young people. The mission is to educate youth about the science of global warming, and empower them to take action. After watching Al Gore's movie An Inconvenient Truth at the age of 12, Alec couldn't help but take action. Brilliant! If you're tackling climate change in your school, or have young people who are interested, check out this project.

Today has been an interesting journey. That's the great thing about the internet. You come across one thing and then, in a matter of moments it takes you somewhere else and then, a few minutes later you end somewhere you didn't even know existed just that few moments back.

An email just came through reminding me of the clips available at the fab Wing Clips site, so thought I'd pass it on. If you're looking for last minute festive films or a short clip to use in a lesson/assembly/group/other you might just find something here.

In Luton this week we're busy preparing for a public exhibition which launches tomorrow night. I just listened to an audio track which will be available on ipods to listen to as you walk around the exhibition and although I see these young people week by week, I was incredibly moved hearing them talk. The exhibition is about children in the care system, by children in the care system, and aims to raise awareness and let their voices be heard.

The final bell of the term will ring in under two weeks, agh, how did that happen?! Still time for plenty of assemblies, lessons and groups looking at the festive theme and engaging young people we encounter with God's story. If you are looking for ideas, here's a summary of all the Christmas related items and resources already featured on this site, but feel free to add your own too...
