There is need for way more in every aspect of youth leadership, education, changemaking … whatever we are seeing is at best 10% of what’s needed and possible. I don’t understand how people can celebrate a good practice and not support and scale it globally, not replicate it in their home region.
I take the best model I find, combine them, polish them up, always thinking of how can I best serve the living planet, humanity, the changemakers, young people and adults yearning for positive change – with instant impact and rich benefits for everyone involved.
I find that’s evident and simple. But maybe that’s because I’ve grown up as fantasy gamer, and have been hammered into shape by an ancient warrior around the sacred fire among the savages.
Anyways, now check these out, trust in me, and give all you’ve got to make all this happen in record time, rain blessings on humanity, and empower the Change Generation to wirld humanity’s finest knowledge in every part of the planet.
These projects are born from questions HOW we can achieve key steps to empowering humanity with humanity’s finest solutions knowledge and support. I’m pretty sure that some answer some dear aspirations of yours.
Knowing what changemakers need and use, I compile and polish up best practices, so that
- busy youth can live their dreams to protect what they love and create a life and world of awesome
- busy teachers, journalists, etc. can boost their professions
- busy citizens and parents can uplift their lives
in simple, efficient ways, adding value and benefits to their personal, idealist and professional lives.
Serve yourself, get involved.

It is simple.
Craig Kielburger and WE have made “creating a good world for all” part of learning culture at 12,000 schools, bringing global issues to life with vivid, concrete examples and a focus on youth-powered charitable “service learning”, with student clubs.
We add social entrepreneurship with transformational solutions, higher degree of self-organization, more hero/ines. Like a Boss Battle upgrade.
We add the stories of 100+ young and adult heroInes with favorite causes and activities for everybody, adding social business, edible landscapes, changing laws and industries, eco-social campaigns, law and justice, media design to expand the scope, reach and impact.
We bring it alive with “Live On Skype” meetings and field partnerships with world-leading changemakers, options for self-organization beyond school, consultation for youth projects in response to local and global issues, official charity status and more.
We offer a full-time Warrior option that gains badges, credits, levels for impact and headlines made. It’s the stuff that makes CVs of awesome – a new species, a new character class on Earth, opening up young changemakers’ paths into societal positions of influence (view below).
