ORGANIZE AN ACTIVITY
pertaining to the Hero/ine’s initiative, such as
- a fundraiser in your group

- in public, via media
- in-kind support
- your own ideas
OR an activity
- supporting, scaling, or
- replicating their initiative
in your part of the world.
CONSIDER FOLLOW-UP ACTION
Live meetings especially can spark ideas and motivation, and formulate concrete opportunities for actions.
Young people on fire, ready, willing, dreaming for positive change is precisely what we want and need.
Saying “No” or “Sorry” to that is exactly the wrong thing. The false role model.
Hence, to get things really super right, be open to follow-up and surprising ideas. Trust that there are always ways to manifest them in creative ways. The inspired youth will take the greater part of the responsibility into own hands, also as a team and club. It’s youth leadership after all!
We are here to help.
TO SUPPORT A HERO/INE
Our mission is to support action for people and planet. The quickest way to do so is to support and implement wildly successful model solutions.
I highly encourage you to boost your speaker’s initiative for several reasons. (1) It adds a quick practical exercise in changemaking, an instant feeling of “being part”, experience of your agency, and momentum for more. That’s a lot, and precious.
(2) Their dream is to see their solution help millions of people – not through words, but for real – and it is urgent. You really make their day.
(3) Like any coach, they love others see take up the sport and unfold their changemaking powers. Because you know, on a serious note – they are not enough. Only if millions join can we make positive impact on people and planet that give us reason for grand celebration – and a wonderful future. for the few of us, and the millions of species going extinct through our dumbness.
So, let’s live our hero spirit starting today. I look forward to celebrating our common achievements and seeing my dream come alive in you; and the many that you will inspire.#FreeHugs Eric

Expect the Unexpected!
There’s beautiful surprises, and annoying ones. “Plans fall apart the moment you encounter people”, Churchill once said. Yep. That’s also true the moment you use the internet, cameras, transport, emergencies, the weather. Shijt happens.
That is why we are very glad about pre- & post-meeting resources and activities. They offer multi-faceted, exciting experiences, even if our encounter falls apart in whatever way. We can always try again.
Our success does not depend on the “encounter” only. Let’s take it as part of real life, part of the experience, bring in our full humanity – and be open about results.
I’m looking forward to meet, dream and take action with you!Eric, YL Captain
