For 2017/2018 COBIS is inviting schools to submit footage of their students, either individually or in small groups, answering at least one of the questions listed below.

  1. Of all the things you are currently learning at school, what do you think will be the most useful to you later in life?
  2. In 200 years, what do you most want to be remembered for?
  3. If you could make one rule for everyone in the world to follow, what would it be?
  4. What do you most want from your teachers?

The clips will then be compiled to form a short film to be shown at the COBIS Annual Conference 2018 and will be hosted on the COBIS website and YouTube page.
