ACTIVATE

as YOUTH!

BECOME A FORCE FOR PEOPLE AND PLANET!

How do youth leaders raise $50,000?

How do they change laws?

How do they operate at schools?

How do they mobilize 100s of supporters?

How do they get booked as speakers?

How do they get on tv? 

You will experience all of this, and more.

Young people have enormous powers. Powers that adults do not have. Like every generation born into a special era, they have the new Operating System in them. 

The future of people and planet depends on youth to activate it, full scale. Dear, you’re needed!

The great news is – it’s not “work”. It’s fun, amazing, and if you like – adventure, like your favorite sport, music or passion. And it develops super skills and friends. Cool, aye?!

Together, we can turn this into the adventure of our lives, and make miracles happen for people and planet, like your wildly successful peers do!

 

Every caring youth can do this. The steps are ridiculously simple. It’s about the magical spirit, the tools, the activities, the partner contacts – and we have tons of that. In combination, they work miracles, just like “synergy is more than the sum of its parts”.

WE WILL BEGIN by showing you a few dozen young hero*ines, their stories and videos, their music, and some interview bits, how they operate at schools, and how you can contribute, rightaway.

Fair enough, huh? Entertaining, too! And then, you decide, whether you want to proceed to next 2. It is highly likely that you will want to. And more. And more. Without limits. 

Before we begin, let me give you a few impressions of your potential future activities and effects.

Common sense stuff. Simple. Feasible. Right?

Look, we know young people today, their heart, their wishes, the often suboptimal setting of school and local community, the suboptimal respect by adults, the insecurities about standing up, getting positive feedback, respect, recognition, support, building honest, friendly community, having fun, following one’s personal interests and ideas, and achieving great good for people and planet … changing lives, laws, industries, learning culture … what you choose to focus on. I recommend to do all of it.

Also, I wish to tell you that there are many yet invisible young and Adult Allies, that you will like, love, respect, and that look forward to caring youth like you, as supporters and partners and mentors.

They are teachers, business holders, artists, journalists, public librarians, city councillors, civil society organizations, parents … that wish to achieve positive impact for people and planet, to empower youth, upgrade life at school, and enrich their personal and professional lives.

They just don’t know how to. We have the resources and relations to help you. And we make it easy.

The big fat magic trick is – it depends on the spirit, and what is used in newsletters, articles, presentations, exhibits. It depends on who you FUNdraise for. And how we organize our interactions. We have used our tools with various groups and settings.

Across generations – this is what people say.

“The most energized lesson ever. Even the most quiet students had something to say.”

“Students are inspired, and wish to be part.”

“Everybody agrees, the exhibit was the best of the school project day.”

“This is what school should always be like.”

Nice, huh? Now let’s look at how to activate your superpowers.

Our Online Crash Course guides you to unfold your inborn skills to …

... change lives, laws, industries, learning culture

 like your hero*ine peers

... make school awesome

by making creating a good world for all part of life

... evolve vivid community

with lovely youth and adult allies, near and far

... connected via internet

with a tribe of kids, volunteers and badass heros

This is the end of boring!

It connects you with all the good-hearted, caring, creative, open-minded people in your region … at schools, in media, businesses, organizations, farmers, markets, online, in your city and country, your continent and around the planet.

You may not think of this when “doing good for people and planet”, but it’s logical, right?

Really good friends!

“We set out to change the image of the young angry activist, to giving all that we have, and all that we are, on behalf of all that we love.”

says Ocean Robbins, who co-founded YES! Youth For Environmental Sanity at the age of 12. That’s some good company, isn’t it? This company comes when you take the right kind of actions for people and planet. You now have lots of action options, modeled on the stories of wildly successful changemakers.

Imagine activating the entire “tree” above.

First steps are simple. The next might feel vague, because you havent done that yet, but it’s pretty clear that this is down to earth stuff. The fact that kids and teens are doing that, having lots of fun, should give you confidence that one will learn by doing. One sets a goal, checks how other youth have done it, follow the steps, freestyle the rest. You can call us for coaching. More allies will pop up – among citzens, trusted teachers, mentors, environmental organizations …

and of course, youth … friends and new friends.

Here is what it looks like at school. And more.

The trick is to get to know many different hero*ines, their causes and activities … and to do like them.

You can support their campaigns, or start them locally
