Thank you for such fantastic entries this week! There was a wide range of opinions about the best strategies and a strong sense of duty to help those less fortunate than us.
Our first winner this week is impartial_shark of Boutcher Primary School, who linked their answer to the other challenges that lesser-developed countries are facing, such as extreme weather.
Our second winner is careful_science of Faringdon Community College, who were very efficient with their words and made several points succintly and effectively.
Well done to the both of you, and for everyone for entering!
People around the world are being vaccinated against covid-19. However, whilst some countries' governments have ordered more vaccines than they need, others can’t afford enough.
France's President, Emmanuel Macron, has said richer countries, like the UK, should send 5% of their vaccines to poorer countries.
This means for every 100 jabs a rich country buys, five of them would be given to a country in need.
Your challenge this week is to suggest how covid-19 vaccines should be shared between countries. Should rich countries give away 5% of their vaccines? Or would a different amount be fairer?
Don’t forget to share your reasons.
CHALLENGE: who might agree/disagree with your decision?
Need some help to get going? Use this sentence starter:
I think rich countries should give X% of their vaccines to countries in need because… (insert reason here).
The deadline for entries is Friday March 19th at midday. PLEASE ENTER ONLY ONCE and make sure your work is your own. Good luck!
