WIELD YOUR SUPERPOWERS FOR THE CHANGE GENERATION

WELCOME

Do you feel love and urgency to do good for people and planet and to help the kids make awesome impact?

Then you are in the right place and we tell you – WAKE UP – and look OUR WAY since 20th Century organizations, educators and media have little relevant to offer you to make rapid changes to lives and land and to activate the young generation en masse as you see from TEEN HERO*INES in the YL Exhibit. 

90+% of adults say they wish to see the same in their cities, and many ask how they can help young hero*ines. We have designed YL to help you do so in many fresh and exciting ways!

WE GIVE YOU opportunity, tools, methods, trainings, partners and supportive like-hearted planetary community to enable this beautiful, biggest, best educated, most peaceful young generation in history to unfold the mind-, feel-, skill- and do-set of Able Active Caring Citizens co-creating the next-level GOOD society.

Dare to Be Great, Earth Lawyer Polly Higgins calls on us – by ending our inner and the outer ecocides.

Have you ever felt you are failing to live your role as adult for today’s kids and Life on Earth?

We affirm that you have reason to and congratulate you, since you have a proper benchmark of what it means to be an Adult. Let’s look at it more precisely in the worlds of the “savages” who treasure initiations into Adulthood.

ADULT: A Guardian of this magnificent planet of majestic mountains, forests and streams, for the Little Ones to grow up in with peace, love, bliss, friendship, vibrant community, unfolding their talents and dreams, protecting the gentle and vulnerable from violence, abuse and pollution of their bodies, minds and hearts. – Eric Schneider, YL Captain

How many Adults, true men and true women do you see around you and on ‘tv’? This is the reason why the world is dying.

We feel you, we hear you and we GIVE you rich opportunity to live as the ADULT that your spirit, soul and heart long TO BE.

Student Club

Namaste Nepal in a town of 30,000 inhabitants does an annual …

Their Trick

They run for 48 hours, day and night nonstop. It’s so epic that everybody can join in – kindergartens, differently abled, the mayor (this gets media in), athletes (this gets companies in) – with simple, swift contributions!

Vivid progress updates

of impact and work visits “create an energy loop” that rewards contributors with a feel of agency that enriches their life

As an earthquake

destroyed every house but the school – which shone like a sign of hope from the mountain. Now, all 7 villages in the valley wanted a school, too.

Students seized a chance

to explain their case to the State Education Minister on a visit in town. “Wow, sure, how Can I help?” “Put it on your newsletter to all schools.” He did. Zipzap, schools got involved! 4 years later, they had built

A Math Teacher

in a faraway small town of 10,000 inhabitants used the story. As he tasked them to calculate construction costs he joked “You wouldn’t even make 1,000.” They gasped, got together and

In Year 2

they scored $20,000€. The sleepy town where nothing ever happens has found its MISSION!

Magic happens
