Northampton School wins competition to help ‘shape the future’

Caroline Chisholm School, Northampton, beat an outstanding shortlist to win a competition to help shape the future of development today. International Development Secretary Justine Greening launched the Shape the Future competition in February, to give UK secondary school pupils a chance to submit ideas for the post-2015 development agenda.

The five shortlisted entrants battled it out in Parliament today, with just 10 minutes each to present their ideas and answer questions. Pupils spoke in front of a panel of experts, including Secretary Greening and representatives from the Development Education Consortium.

Caroline Chisholm School’s winning proposal will feed into the Prime Minister’s work as co-chair of the United Nation’s High Level Panel, looking at what should succeed the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) from 2015.
