Action plan

It has become your life purpose to create a charity organisation. Design its core purpose, and its key functions. Then create an action plan for putting it all into place over the next year.

Develop an environmental action plan for your home so that it wastes the fewest possible resources. Your plan must focus on reducing, reusing and recycling.

What impact do YOU make on the environment? Calculate exactly how many resources you use over a set period (e.g. a day, or even a week). This includes: food, fuel, water, electricity.

Work out what deeply motivates you to work at your best. Outline at least three key factors that inspire you to give your greatest effort. Now use this information to set a short term, a medium term and a long-term goal for the next year.

Plan a fantastic week at home that balances out your physical, social, academic and emotional needs. Then go out and fully live it. Afterwards, reflect on how you could have improved on what you planned.

What is the most important piece of technology ever invented? The wheel? The computer? The pencil? Make your decision, and design a powerful visual and oral presentation to support your choice. Include some strong evidence.
