Want your students to take a more active role in changing the world, but not sure where to start? Every Three Seconds is the story of 5 everyday people, changing the world.
This is a powerful display of how ordinary people even a young boy can empower themselves to change the world.
The movie itself is also a great illustration of how to create a campaign and raise awareness. You may want to share this interview with Daniel Karslake, the film maker, who talks about his very deliberate decision not to focus on statistics or depressing stories, but on stories of action and empowerment so as to enable others to act.
Use this video to kick off a session of finding passions – get students to discuss and reflect on what moved them while they were watching, and what it inspires them to want to act on.
Make sure to take the lessons of the film to heart – those making change in the film, started small, they didn’t aim for some big campaign reaching 1000 people, they started with just themselves, and what they could do.
