The Edit: Be the change, shape it

It’s all in The Edit. How we shape stories can change the world. We want young people to share their vision, with the tools to build a better future.

In year one of The Edit the topic of climate change was covered, reaching 646 schools during the most difficult year teachers and students have faced in modern history. From those taking part, 45% of schools were in low-income areas with 14% in some of the most deprived areas in the country.

Primary school pupils from Eagley Junior School in Bolton and secondary school pupils from St Margaret’s Academy were announced as the first ever winners of The Edit for their creative news story encouraging others to #GoZero as part of Sky’s ambition to be net zero carbon by 2030. The winning students saw their news reports broadcast on Sky News’ FYI programme last weekend.
