Mental health: doomscrolling
What is "doomscrolling"? And why do the media often present negative news stories?
This resource, perfect for form times and assemblies, is made up of five
20-minute discussions about racial inequality. Each discussion is sparked by a talk from a top expert. Download now to get students discussing key themes, including: representation, unique experience and what it means to be
"anti-racist" versus "not racist".
From crime and carelessness, to corruption and cluelessness – our latest Special Edition gets students talking about politicians' behaviour. Over six hours, students explore the issue in depth before creating a final piece of work about how best to maintain politicians' standards.
Students' work can then be entered into a competition for a chance to win the Politics Prize 2023.

The Festival brings Topical Talk lessons to life by giving students the chance to discuss what they’re learning about in the classroom on a global scale. Young people are invited to learn from, and exchange ideas with, a host of international peers and topic experts. Each Festival is packed with inspiring activities, online events and awards for thoughtful conversations and ideas.
