Ms O’brien’s ‘Save the World’ conference

Wow! What an amazing day we had on Wednesday at our first ‘Save the World’ conference. With teams from across the borough, students worked in groups to design and plan a project that would help, in some, way to make a real difference to peoples lives.
 
I was inspired to run this event by going to a TED talk day which I found very inspiring and vowed I would do something similar at school. I arranged for Clare Barclay, COO Microsoft UK, to deliver a key note speech about how IT is changing and presenting us with real opportunities to improve our quality of life. She showed us a range of projects that are making real differences in health, transport and with environmental issues. We also welcomed an ambassador form Greenpeace, Amy MacFarlane, who spoke passionately about their campaigns. After the talks I spoke to the students about their projects and how they should prepare for presentations to the whole audience at the end of the day. Microsoft came in with new surface pros and their team worked with our students to ensure all presentations were ready for the deadline. 
 
Some of the ideas the students had were amazing, ranging from carbon capturing technology, power pads on footpaths to capture kinetic energy, to an ecology app that tracked our carbon footprint. We had ten brilliant ideas! After much discussion, the awards for the best idea and presentations went to the Ooga Booga team (Lucas Welshman, Adam ward, Kai Atkins, Ali Nurumand, Sydney Kasiko and Amin Yasin) for their exceptional idea of turning old tube carriage stock into homes for the homeless. They even researched the site! They each won a Microsoft goody bag. I was incredibly proud of our young people and it fills me with huge hope for our future with these young adults thinking so creatively about how to solve some of our major challenges as a planet.
 
Thank you to Waldegrave School, Turing House School, Lady Eleanor Holles School, Orleans Park School and Hampton School for joining us.
 
We look forward to recreating the day next year and cannot wait to listen to even more creativity! 
 
Please see the students’ comments below about the day:
 
Orleans Park School: “The speeches were influential and encouraged us to think outside the box.”
 
“I liked the school itself and have thought about becoming more eco friendly.”
 
“It was informative and good because it pushed me out of my comfort zone.”
 
Waldegrave School: “I learnt a lot about the different career paths I could take in the future and aboout how technology is changing.”
 
“I learned abot Greenpeace and what it does and how it helps the environment. I have really enjoyed today.”
 
“I loved learning about differnet presenting methods and working as a team. I now know how best to work in a team. I also found out about the steps I now need to take to help the environment.”
 
Turing House School: “I really enjoyed the talks by Clare and Amy, they were both very informative and engaging.”
 
“I thought it was really interesting and eye-opening to how many ways there are to help the world.”
 
Lady Eleanor Holles School: “It was fun and highly educational. The speakers were great - inspirational!”
 
Hampton High: “ It’s been a hell of a journey, creating our projects and presenting them.”
 
“To be quite honest, the day has been... amazing to tbe able to use a Microsft Surface to discuss our ideas on saving the workd - what’s not to love.”
