We love their work.Change Generation Rising goes similar ways but reachesaround the globe and with very little effort. it offers additionalthings that can amplify action in schools and beyond evenmore. By active youth groups, but also by new groups formingbecause the offers to date have not been attractive enough.

  • As you can easily tell, the career evolves naturally. By taking actions, using the tools(webcasts, poster exhibits > wall display) and gaining visible media presence and demandas speakers at other schools, the Warriors make impacts, build community, friendships,develop skills and lifelong memories AND gain recognition as role models and ... "assistantteachers" trustworthy and precious to manage student-powered activities at school, thatget ever more interwoven with classroom teaching and the school calendar. This impactstheir entire local generation. It can happen quite quickly. 3 Missions can be accomplishedin a month. Webcast, Exhibit and Wall Display can even be implemented in the first month.Imagine the impacts, the personal growth after one year! Imagine ten, twenty, fifty youthat a school doing this, ... over five or more years at school. They will be unlike any "grown-ups" you have ever seen. This is why I say... it's like a different species. And that's whatwe need, as Co-creators and Inhabitants of a global, peaceful, sustainable civilisation.





    This wheel shows simplesteps, building up on oneanother, using theelements in YL

  • Sure.They ARE doing it.

    Not everyone is a master at it, right away.But it's the same with everything.

    It's like in gameplay.You dig it, spend time on it, and quickly grow.

    Think of ball players.They quickly pick up any other ball sport.Think of musicians. They pick up other styles.Think of card game enthusiasts. It goes super fast.Oh, and computer gamers.

    This game is for those who love changemaking.Many already do it, and would love to go bigger.

    See what teens are doing.

    They have awesome tools with them.And a team beyond awesome.

  • "I knew young people are doing stuff, but this issensational. I am floored by the potentials."

    "The videos have instilled a sense of activism in myentire family. I was especially surprised by their impacton my younger peers."

    "I am crying. I think this says it all. Ameena is awesome.She gives me strength, too."

    You have awesome media in your hands.

    They serve you to inspire others and build community,- and also to inspire you to ever greater heights andnurture the same passion, vision and determinationinside yourself.

    We all have it inside. We FEEL it, when we feelinspired... the next step simply is to verbalize it. Justlike we are inspired from music ... and then learn tosing. You have it inside. And with practice, you learnto unleash the spirit, for real.

    So, immerse yourself in good company and practice!

  • The Webcasts serve several purposes

    They take place in mornings,afternoons, evenings and on week-ends.

    They are usually tunedto current UN Theme Days of the month.

    This means that teams (and teachers) can join andcombine it with as much audience, participation andimpacts as is possible in their frameworks. In class,as ecoclubs, or at home.With or without special missions.

    Participants- meet heroes in person- are prepared, ask meaningful questions and how they can take the solution to scale- present their own achievements, if they have taken actions in support of the hero's initiative- celebrate common achievements

    This makes them a powerful inspirational experiencefor newcomers, a great stage for accomplished warriorsand a community-building experience.

    - scope and multitude of solutions form a holistic impression: an abundance of solutions for a sustainable civilisation is available"

    - multimedia experience, add videos- interactive experience - enable feedback through posters and more

    - opening a conversation about "what changes would you like to see?" "who inspires you most and why?" "which initiative are you willing to join?"

    ... Nurturing a Changemaking Climate by making Role Models present 24/7
