Welcome to the Global Conversation!

We're delighted to welcome you to Issue 5 of this year's Burnet News Club - the Global Conversation! Watch the video below to learn all about it...

Really important advice:


  • If you are completing the session activities you should add your answers to the comments section at the bottom of the page. Do not “write post”
  • One-line posts will not be published. Click here to watch Olivia introduce the Hub and how to make sure your work gets published!
  • We don’t want big fact-files. Facts are good but we really want to hear your opinion, supported by facts. Tell us what you think and what evidence has led you to that opinion. Ask some questions to other people to start a discussion
  • Only use images in the image library or upload images that you have drawn yourself. Other images will be deleted as we do not have the copyright to use other people’s work
  • We recommend you write about 2-3 posts in total over the course of the project. The rest of the time you should write comments


  • You should only enter the weekly competition once so take time to make your entry as good as it can be!
  • Enter the weekly competition by scrolling down and writing in the comment box, do not click “write post”


  • You should always explain your ideas and opinions. Comments like “I agree” will no longer be accepted
  • Try to reply to people! This is a global conversation: ask about other people’s opinions, share your experiences and learn from each other


  • You can win skills stars when you show excellent communication and critical-thinking skills. Learn more about winning stars here.

And lastly...

  • Do not use your own names on the Hub
  • Everything must be in your own words!
  • If you have any questions - ask them below and we'll get right back to you
