A Humanist social action initiative
Humanists have always been concerned with social action, citizenship and good community. We want to support more people volunteering and doing things to help others. To achieve this we are running “Resolution Revolution”, a project which offers a twist on traditional New Year resolutions and encourages us all to make and keep a resolution to do something to help others this New Year.
Many thanks to all the participants and schools that took part in last year’s pilot – the feedback has been fantastic and really useful to ensuring that this year’s website and schools materials reflect your experience as well as evidence based research on how resolutions are best made and kept.
The free toolkit for schools is available now. This stand alone schools project has been to designed for Key Stage 2 although the materials are all fully editable and have been used with EFL students and FE Colleges. The pack contains everything you need to run the project and highlight’s the targets and evidence that Resolution Revolution is designed to meet and help you collect.
Described by a head of year as a Year 12 teacher commented ‘ Brilliant! Excellent, totally different from anything else we do here’, Resolution Revolution is a genuinely inclusive, seasonal activity. For more information or to receive a copy of the pack please complete the form below.
What’s this got to do with Humanism?
One of the central elements of a humanist view is that individual responsibility, social cooperation and mutual respect are vitally important. By taking positive action we can solve the problems of society by actively engaging with each other and basing our actions on shared human values. Making resolutions for change and working together to keep them is one way of doing this. The Humanism for schools area offers a number of easy to use online toolkits for teachers wishing to explain the background to Humanism and its core values: http://www.humanismforschools.org.uk/.
