The teams each made a short two minute film to demonstrate the European Union’s international development programme. The finished films will be uploaded to the site early in the new year. Here are some shots of the film makers in action.

We are planning a wonderful exhibition early in 2016 with images of children from each of the 28 member states. Each child has also sent his or her message for the future.
The exhibition will be held in Durham City but we will also have an online gallery to share on our website.
This year’s award event celebrated the achievements of 53 schools from the North East and from Yorkshire and the Humber who had been successful in obtaining the British Council’s International School Award. Payal Ramchandani opened the event with beautiful kutchpudi dancing and our guest speaker Dr Niall McCann enthralled the two hundred strong audience with his tales of his travels across the globe, his passion for biology and his tireless work to support conservation.
