The point is to learn to wield them.

A note from our founder on your historic game changing potentials
  • to create a world of awesome for all
  • the solutions exist, powered by ordinary people

  • true friendship with honest people
  • design your choice of adventures
  • make lifelong memories

  • build a profile on media and a fabulous CV

 

Youth

Young people are the heart and backbone of our tribe. Implement your choice of 400+ actions from 100+ heroInes with powerful model solutions. Make quick impact, build community, gain support and media presence, using our full spectrum of tools, tactics and services. Then, freestyle! Respond to local causes, design own initiatives, backed by our global tribe.

Casual, occasional activities

CREWS

Get some friends together, select your favorite causes and organize your first activities. Have Fun!

We recommend to sit down together and explore our huge scope of resources, heroInes, solutions and actions. The Crash Course is a really good introduction and training. You may discover passions and visions you never dreamed of. Our selection of Instant High Impact Actions helps you get started with flying banners, make an impact, headlines, new friends and allies. Taking photos boosts fun, reach and impact via social and news media. Share with us, please! Then, there’s school …

Frequent actions involving many every day

Student CLUBS

Our tools, tactics and services help you spark and sustain a year-round stream of activities in the daily hangout of your entire generation, reaching into classrooms, common space, canteens and the community. “Victory Lane” lays out the path to success. It is actually simple, and your benefits are enormous.

Registered High Impact Student Clubs can also have official pages, gain badges, bring in own campaigns and more.

Why this is our #1 priority :

School is our entire young generation’s daily hangout. It’s the one and only space where our entire young generation can agree on what future they want for themselves, for each other, people and planet, define goals and take action implementing solutions – like their famous hero peers – for ten plus years at school! Even those not interested will develop positive worldview and know where to find solutions when they need them. This is the game changer, fulfills the purpose of schooling (and there’ll never be time for it from age 18+ buzy with professional and family lives). We hope that this vision motivates you to become active part of our gobal tribe, and unfold the full potentials of High Impact Student Clubs.

Constant, year-round action like a pro

Warrior CLANS

Cookie sales, short showers, tree planting, petty petitions are not enough? WE AGREE. But where find stuff, solutions, support for high impact actions that make a real difference, changing society? We help you shift from amateur mode to ATHLETE.

Warriors, Wonders and Weirdos commit to a set of 3 monthly missions, selected from dozens of options, tuned to UN Days, and document them for maximum reach and impact. If humanity lived in an adventure reality game, this is a new character class. As true heroInes do, they level up for completed missions, gain credits, badges, and wield magic. From Level 10, they can freestyle their missions and bring in own campaigns. Pure epic!

They are our tribe’s powerhorses and routinely interact with our core crew and heroInes, gather at summer camps, have personal and clan pages serving as public profiles, news streams, stunning CVs …
