Sky, Adobe & We Are Futures: The Edit
The 90-second news report challenge gives young people a platform to speak about the things they care about the most, whilst giving them the digital skills needed to unlock opportunities and new career pathways in creative industries. Telling stories of Climate Change or Equality, Diversity and Inclusion through their own eyes, students will learn to critically engage with how the subject is presented in the media, before creating their own narrative. The stories created will come to life through Adobe’s creative tools, used alongside Sky world class footage with the best films being celebrated at Sky facilities.

We have empowered almost 4,000 young people through a coordinated programme of workshops, webinars, work experience, competitions and long-term employer support.

Perivoli Schools Trust
The Perivoli Schools Trust runs a nursery schoolteacher training programme in five countries across Sub-Saharan Africa. It is funded by the Perivoli Foundation, a UK charity.
The Trust developed the programme to reduce dropout rates at primary school by helping nursery schoolteachers to focus on play. This is achieved through fun activities that use recyclable waste materials, such as bottle tops and empty cans.
Since its launch in 2013, the programme has reached over 11,500 teachers and around 250,000 children. Through its affordable and highly scalable model, the long-term target is to reach 200,000 schoolteachers and 5 million children.
