World Values Day Schools Pack 2024

Our WVD Schools Pack – 2024 is back! As always, it provides a fun and engaging range of activities and resources for schools, youth groups, families and carers to celebrate World Values Day on 17th October 2024.

The theme of World Values Day on Thursday, 17th October this year is Bringing Values to Life, and we would love the hundreds of schools and youth-centred groups around the world that take part in World Values Day to spend time that day bringing their values to life, involving not only pupils, teachers and staff but also where possible parents, carers, friends neighbours and the wider community.

Our children deserve to feel safe in a globally conscious world. They deserve to know that their presence is celebrated and that their ideas will help us shape the future. World Values Day is a way of bringing them together with each other, with their communities and with the wider world in a safe environment.

The Schools Pack offers a number of interesting ways of enhancing that community and global engagement. The Showcase of Learning and Coffee and Discussion activities are both great ways of reaching out to the local community. Community Values Sanctuaries provides a resource which can be enjoyed by the school and local community, and will prompt creativity and love of nature for years to come.

Reading Across the Generations is about sharing stories with members of the community including grandparents and other elders. The Vintage Playground Olympics reaches out across the generations too, with its revival of old playground games which children can continue to enjoy throughout the year.

We are particularly excited to announce a new resource that will also foster better connection between the generations. It has been specially developed for this year’s World Values Day by our old friend and prolific game-maker Dipak Fakey OBE and his Good Values Club. Let’s Talk is a board and card game which stimulates meaningful conversations across the generations, and is particularly helpful for children wanting to connect with grandparents or other adults with dementia. Dipak has trialled this game extensively and successfully over the last few months in a variety of settings. We would love to have your feedback on this game (and of course on other activities in the Pack).

Other activities in the Pack include the Values Bring Us Together Project that Dipak developed for us last year which provides various ways for pupils to find their way to becoming Values Champions.  The Big 5 Inside Weather and School Climate Project is a 5-week fully resourced and ready-to-go programme for primary schools designed to enhance your school climate and unite your whole school community in 5 easy stages.

SuperKids is designed to spread awareness and understanding among all age-groups about the brain and brain tumours. The Global Poetry Showcase gives anyone who feels he has a poem of any kind inside them to showcase it to others, and if they prefer to express themselves creatively in art, they can do that through the Art of Values Showcase.

Finally, our old favourite the ValuesJam is a brilliant way of sparking interesting and unexpected conversations with others. You can use this set of playful values cards either one-on-one or in groups, inside the school or at home with your family.

All of the activities and ideas have been created with busy schools in mind. They are ready to go and have been piloted in schools with feedback given. With each activity there is a suggested age group for whom we deem the activity most suitable. However, you know the young people you work with best, and we welcome a dialogue with you on how you plan to adapt these to meet your needs.
