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