Looks at issues surrounding social values and ethics.
Every day we make decisions that are underpinned by our ideas of what is right and wrong. But where do these ideas come from? Where do our values come from and who decides which values are used in a society?
In this book, we're looking at topics that are strongly connected to the values people hold and their ideas of right and wrong, topics such as democracy, justice and injustice, fairness and unfairness, climate change and war.
The aim is to get you to think for yourselves about the big questions raised by these subjects, and then use your answers to make your own list of values that are important to you.
We hear from people who tell us how their experiences have shaped their ideas of what is right and wrong, including the journalist Laura Bates, the MP Tulip Siddiq, the campaigner Richard Rieser and the writer Alex Wheatle.
