HI, this is my personal page, with some impressions on what makes me tick and what I have to offer.
My #1 goal in life is to inspire, equip and empower this gobal young generation at school (their common hangout for their ten forming years) to learn and implement humanity’s finest solutions for peace and abundance for all, in live and personal collaboration with the Einsteins and Gandhis of today, many of which are teens. I’m actively working full time to make it a reality – and it’s happening!
“It dawns to me that Eric is the world authority on youth-powered change and schools as hotspots of change.
His take on youth leadership – kids and teens as agents of change in their communities – opens our eyes to a sensational phenomenon that’s already touching millions through schools and big media. I feel positively shocked and humbled by my ignorance of this matter. My God, I feel so behind, but also terribly happy and excited.
Chapeau to the visionary who sees this fantastic future emerge, and thank you for giving us the tools to bring it about.”- Dylan, session host
My publications bring the spirit of the change generation to a global audience at home, school and public.
“I never knew youth could do this. I’m floored by the potential.”
There’s incredibly positive things happening that you have no idea of! Let This Young Generation entice you to explore everything I have to offer. It’s all candy.
My flagship projects YOUTH-LEADER and CHANGE GENERATION RISING unite thousands of youth leaders, changemakers, organizations and volunteer citizens for spreading a culture of youth leadership in their cities and schools, and activating their communities for supporting changemakers, scaling and replicating their model solutions. People from 70 nations have embraced them for enriching their lives.
If your heart beats for empowering the young generation at grand scale for evoking massive transformational changes like their famous peers — join YL and CGRISING. You’ll love your impact!

Uniting hundreds of its leading figures, YOUTH-LEADER is virtually unstoppable. Everybody loves it. Now is the time to take it everywhere, and make a Speed Run to a Bright New World! It may be more than you ever hoped for.
