ADULTS

LIVE YOUR DREAM : A GOOD WORLD FOR THE KIDS!

Welcome!

Empowering the Change Generation calls on all of us to do our part.

"How can we help?" "Bring pizza." - Alex Wind, March For Our Lives

Young people are the drivers of change. Following their passion, they have a good intuition, selecting their causes, activities and challenges, along their skills and safe limits. This is the law of Youth Leadership. Adults do nothing but seed information, have open conversations and support on demand. No pushing, consulting, overriding; that would be ab-use.

Still, we need you, BIG TIME! for a few things requiring “permission”, transport, money, professional skills and capacities. With no time to lose (link to Why Care?), we need adults to step into their roles with high efficiency and commitment.

As an Adult Ally, you have three roles : 1. to inform, 2. to inspire, 3. to support

We explain below how to play your role with a set of activities, resources, and a bundle of instant actions to get started. We also provide “live” and long-term support.

You can also become a solid official member of our tribe, as volunteer and partner.

Ah, to make the most of it, it helps to remember your role as an Adult.

#RE-DEFINE ADULT

ADULT: A Guardian of this magnificent world of mountains, streams, forests, oceans, teeming with myriads of flowers and animals clad in the most beautiful colors… for the little ones to grow up in in peace, joy and abundance. Protecting the vulnerable from violence, abuse and poisoning of their bodies, minds and hearts.

How many of those claiming to be a real man, a liberated woman are truly living this today? They are still just inhabitants of failing, unsustainable societies.

WITH US, YOU ARE STEPPING INTO YOUR ROLE. #RedefineAdult

WHY CARE? The bad news
Brief info, links to state of the world page
WHY CARE? The good news
Lorem ipsum. Now opportunity, and simple.
WHY CARE? What's in for you?
Ikigai
WHY CARE? What if I don't?
You’ll feel worse than before, because now you know that it is easy to evoke tremendous changes

You know that it is only your ego (lazy, doesn’t dare to feel, love, give lifetime) that keeps you from acting.

You can no longer say it’s this or that politician, or this and that industry, or the 1%, or that people don’t care – because the only one that doesn’t is YOU.

We are not saying this to put you down. But because we know exactly what’s going on in our adult minds, hearts and bellies in this time. We are naming what others do not dare or cannot grasp and formulate.

We also know that once you feel your heart, your agency, get active and feel the positive resonance around you, you will enjoy the blessings. It’s the best thing that any of us can do. It’s a law of nature. Of your good human nature.

That’s why we insist, and do not permit you to chicken out.

That’s why we design this to be as simple, fun and rewarding as possible for you.

So spend the little time to listen, read, follow our guidance, then follow your impulses and get doing.

We have all the solutions. We do not need hope. We need action. Once we take action, hope appears everywhere. – Greta Thunberg

Instant Actions III

SLIGHTLY ADVANCED STUFF

Okay, we all know that healing society, upgrading industrial civilization is a biggie. The more we accept the truth that it is our historic task and purpose as a generation, and how we will be forever judged by history … as egoistic Villains & Victims … or as Honorable Hero*ines.

We know that when one lacks solutions, opening one’s heart to this is like starting into a can of worms. Or demons. Fear not. We do open this conversation because we can hand you a cornucopia of solutions and support! So that you can embrace your dreams, your love and passions for people and planet, and start living them with robust steps. Its blessings are unlimited and will work miracles, with much surprise. Here are a few examples of Action proposals.

These are not expected. 

We know that you have a busy life. But we encourage you to try, since success can come unexpected! Imagine that each Adult tries 1 per year. We can do that!

Plus it’s fun! Your IKIGAI awaits you!

THE MEDIA LOVE 

SOLUTION AND HERO STORIES

There are caring journalists waiting for you to open their eyes. Help them live their dream.

SCHOOLS 

ARE NOT CLOSED AS THEY USED TO BE AT YOUR TIME AT SCHOOL 

Educational guidelines have developed big time, it’s just that you have no clue what the good professional and ministers and UNESCO are doing. What your many local caring teachers need are the genius tools, tricks and partners to make it real and to awaken to the miraculous powers of Youth Leadership already activated at 16,000 schools. Help their live their dream and discover them as wonderful friends!

Good teachers are priority #1! They are the most important ally of our young generation, because they decide if they can grow up with it daily, or not. In comparison, journalists, politicians, rich people and celebrities are irrelevant. Youth leadership has thrived at schools without celebs and riches. But never without caring teachers.

Hence, #BeWise #BeGenerous and seed Media Packs to schools, and #BeMoreAwesome : take the Tutorial to learn to give Level Up! kick off sessions for the Crash Course (that students can self-organize). Together, we can ACTIVATE YOUR CITY, and that’ll be your key for the Heavenly Gates.

PLENTY OF OPPORTUNITY. That’s great news,
and easy to align with your lifestyle.
