Speak Act Do: Action Hub

Speak Act Do is Concern’s school programme to support teachers and students in taking action on some of the defining issues of our time - Climate Change, Conflict, Inequality, Poverty and Hunger. 

It is a six to eight week programme that works whatever the location or context of the school. It is designed to be flexible, led by the school and supported by the Concern schools team. It can be ran independently or embedded into CSPE, TY modules or Politics and Society. 

On this page, you will find all the resources and information that you need to get start.
