National or International Awareness Campaigns and major holidays can be a great way in to a PSHE topic. Below are some dates that are coming up in the next few weeks:
July - Talk To Us
Talk To Us is Samaritan's annual awareness-raising campaign.
Samaritans are challenging the UK to become better listeners by sharing expert tips on how to be a better listener. Throughout July, Samaritans branches are also holding events throughout the UK and Ireland to raise awareness of the services they offer in their local communities.
15th July – World Youth Skills Day 2019
Young people are almost three times more likely to be unemployed than adults and continuously exposed to lower quality of jobs, greater labour market inequalities, and longer and more insecure school-to-work transitions. World Youth Skills Day aims to raise awareness about the importance of youth developing skills.
30th July - World Day Against Trafficking in Persons
Every year, millions of children, women and men fall into the hands of traffickers, lured by fake promises and deceit. Human trafficking has become a global multi-billion-dollar enterprise, affecting nearly every country in the world.
