We tell our stories in many forms. One of them – Poster Sets! No one does this, but us – and they are a super powerful tool for you!
Why, what’s so cool about it? You can print them in any size you want and use them as teaching tools in class, for workshop sessions, as coffee table book, and – as EXHIBIT.
Exhibits are the real thing, since they create the long-term presence required for leaving a mark on people’s minds, making youth leadership omni-present in our daily lives, part of our worldview(!), making it feel “real” . There is a big difference between a quick online glimpse and something tangible. Long-term exhibits enable people to browse and study whenever they feel like, discuss between friends, view the exciting videos on their phones using the qr codes. And, it doesn’t get wrecked, lost or stolen, like books do. Therefore…
Imagine this exhibit at school, kindergartens, in office corridors, cafes, canteens, waiting rooms, conference venues, youth centres, town halls, festivals, as nighttime projections in public, … all those crowded places with time for exploration and conversation. And boring places.
Use this exhibit “space” for your aim: action! Add fundraiser calls (posters), campaign flyers, a table for fundraisers, bake and lemonaid sales, vegan delights, etc. At school, make this “space” your YL student club’s Headquarter and favourite hangout, with monthly Social Experiment lifestyle challenges, updates from projects and international field partnerships, calls for gatherings, events and field trips. The exhibit is your perfect “stage”, with the right set and ambience.
Alternate Themes – using different Poster Sets (Youth, Girls & Women, Peacemakers, etc.) or putting together your own selection. Add pertaining actions. This way, you can sustain a year-round, multi-faceted stream of activities with new highlights, favourite themes, causes and actions for everyone! This is new and huge, since it allows student clubs to go way beyond anything we know… with bigger presence, school community involvement, fun and of course – impact!
Attune them with UNITED NATIONS Days of the Month. This is our super hot recommendation, as we align many YL activities with UN Theme Days. Why? It gives us a nature rhythm through the year, facilitates integration in subjects, including speakers onsite, via skype and webcast, collaboration with civil society partners and getting presence in your local media.
Cool, hay? Share your ideas and photos in class and as exhibits with us!

CHILDREN & YOUTH LEADERS
Our headliner set. The most amazing young people on the planet. No less.
GIRLS & WOMEN
A most amazing set dissolving any ridiculous opinions about women.
A must-use. Not only in India, Africa and Latin America. But also in Europe, and North Americia, still stuck in rape culture, harassment, stupid stereotypes and getting lost in an “emancipation” making women the same destructive power egos as the old men of the past.
Meet Girls & Women living their true selves. Living what truly matters. Saving the living planet, and creating the new civilization of awesome.
Meet the most courageous people on the planet. Peacemakers go where there is no peace. They go where there is war, and violence. They set out to create what others call impossible. And they achieve. Discover the full spectrum of peacemaking: inner and outer, communal and ecological peace.
THE GRAND CHANGEMAKERS
Observe. Wonder. Breathe. Upgrade. Join.
The most powerful visionary changemakers of our era, leading 21st Century proof model solutions for peace, sustainability and abundance for all.
For optimal impact – worldview shift, memorable impression and finding favourite causes – it is important to show an abundance of youth leaders, from all parts of the world, working miracles on seemingly impossible challenges.
Viewing 40 posters with full texts can be overwhelming. This is why we offer media and methods for providing flashlight impressions on hero/ines and causes. Viewers can then select their favourite stories for deeper study and getting involved.
In Spark Sessions, group members give brief presentations on their hero/ines causes and success stories.
For Exhibits, we suggest to display posters with one sentence + add prints with the full story as booklet.
Keep in mind that we have more posters (portraits, feedback, activities etc.) to make the exhibit most exciting.
