“Teachers are our generation’s most important allies.
They decide if we can learn to create a good world for all, or not.” Craig Kielburger, WE
Co-create Media & Publish
Media literacy is en vogue among educators, parents and funders. Usually, it means
- in the U.S. : tech skills
- in Germany : decipher truth, manipulation, context
- to us : producing positive change media, i.e. solution stories presented in memorable, inspirational, empowering form
Here’s what we have to offer : how about your students find, interview, report on changemakers and solutions, get a regional conversation going by cocreating a kicass POSITIVE NEWS MAGAZINE – with the aim to amplify positive changes?
We can at last live our purpose!
not just co2 emissions voting and waiting, but everything that needs doing , act right away, act by new paradigm, of sovereign responsible citizens

we don’t provide you with CO2 stuff. we’ll link to some good resources.

Hence, we provide you with the tools, tricks, support and partners for a new learning culture (proven at 16,000+ schools) that nurtures youth leadership, active citizenship, evokes remarkable changes for people and planet, enriches learning culture, serves the greater community, and makes your days much more fulfilling. How is that? The key to all this are Changemaker student Clubs uniting your caring youth for year-round self-organized activities for people and planet, backed by a global tribe of like-hearted youth, adult allies, and today’s Einsteins and Gandhis, no joke! And – you.
You’ll find much more on our website, also with more details to make school awesome, crash courses for youth, teaching tools … this page serves as overview of what we got, and what’s now available to you – with a focus on CLIMATE matters.
It’s not a little bit. And that’s good! Because with a couple of brochures you cannot cultivate a new learning culture! We offer you plenty of amazing things, and as a good teacher – your eyes should open wide, and you should smile ear to ear. So many exciting years ahead, now!
Get a drink, sit back and enjoy!
Teachers are the most important ally of our young generation. They decide if young people get the chance to grow up learning how to create a good world, or not.
“Never before has a teacher’s profession been more important for humanity.”
We value you super high!
We know that conventional schools can be tough on idealist teachers. Hence, our aim is two-fold.

Make your Region Climate-Crisis Resilient
while reducing emissions and activating a much greater part of citizens to create the society, community life, peaceful economy and future they want – based on common sense policies and solutions already successfully implemented by communes around the planet.
as inhabitant of your region is this : to restore Paradise.
You shall not wait for national government to spend billions to pay adults to restore your local natural ecosystems, edible landscapes and create peace among local humans, animals and nature.
This is ridiculous – it is too expensive, takes too long, local councils would even resist this top-down order, and the young generation would sit idle, and stay impotent voters like today’s adults, waiting to be governed like in a de/centralized quasi-monarchy.
Instead, your role is to act as able, active, caring citizens, a responsible steward and guardian of your local region, your land, your people and your relations, your economy, your peace – by learning and implementing humanity’s finest solutions :
Quadruple biodiversity, pollinators, fertile soil, water, free foods, a sense of active citizenry – and city councils will love it, and say, “wow, we always wanted to do this, but couldn’t afford it,” and youth will team up with foresters, public servants, organic farmers etc.
This is the new citizen that our societies need, and The Purpose Of Schooling, and it perfectly synchs with your fiery passion, sense of urgency, of education, of action and the required impact – en masse.
Fired up students will self-organize for action beyond school hours, like they do with sports and music, and this is where the huge impact is made (also like in sports and music).
But you, at school, are the hub and training ground where to learn, unite and practice with exciting first results.
We give you excellent resources and support to make it fun, impactful and a rich learning experience, too!

The City we all want to live in
Making life awesome – with thriving community, friendship, no violence, no crime, no harassment, exciting public spaces, active citizenry restores and upgrades the social cohesion that we need for
- resilience – to stand together against threat and catastrophe (scared, survival)
- cocreativity – trust, appreciation, common sense agreement and encompassing vision to create the GOOD next level collaborative society together (our shared dream, LIVING!)
THE CITY WE ALL WANT TO LIVE IN
So, what if we simply take 100 good practice solutions and implement them all in our city? Isn’t this the common sense thing to do? What was wrong with our brains to miss out on making life way more awesome? Time to get started.
A Good City
is not just “sustainable” with solar panels and recycling waste bins.
It is also a wonderful place for kids to grow up in, play in public space, youth to enjoy themselves, people to feel safe at day and night, anywhere, also women in mini skirts. It is city without corruption, crime, where we make decision on what is good.
OUR CITY OUR RULES
We are far from it, yet close, if we are clear about our vision and impelment myriads of common sense solutions.
IT STARTS WITH THE VISION
Re-dream your city
We Create the Anthropocene
The Anthropocene begins to be communicated as new worldview, also at school. It serves to create big picture view and show the agency of humanity and humans, but it is so far badly done, like climate info – by fact checkers that know nothing of solutions and changemaker spirit. As this is about extinction, this is hurtful.
Already, teachers report that students break down in tears in the classroom, and they don’t know how to help the young generation. We offer help. We shift the story, vision and “to-do”
- from seeing life wither to ashes wasting time on petitions, munching on organic muesli bars, proud of a jute bag, hoping for Obama #fail
- to restoring life in record time through implementing high impact, transformational solutions at local and global level, that change lives, laws and industries, and prepare our upgrade to the next level collaborative society beyond outdated interest group democracy.
Yes, Harry, it’s big. It’s a new planetary age.
For the time being, this term, and planetary course are connotated with horrid images of destruction, as Game Over, like fate.
While we are the biggest fan of truth and hurtful scenarios, an unwise communication of Anthropocene without positive solutions galore for users to implement beyond turning off the bloody tap while brushing their teeth, creates apathy, mental illness, retreat, and sabotages positive change.
We need to upgrade the inherited programming of “irreversible fate” still prevalent in the majority of people; from disempowered minions of monarchy to able, active caring citizens, of changemakers, and from morons of totalitarian religions to becoming the hand of God on Earth aligned with God’s being : love, joy, peace – that means upliftment, not abuse and destruction bringing people and animals down into a state of hellish pain, torture, suffering, scarcety, death.
Communicate 100s of solutions to shape a comprehensive vision that we can definitely right now create a GOOD world, as we wield the finest knowledge of humanity to shape the Anthropocene in ways aligned what our hearts want, and not what some greedy idiots do intentionally or through negligence or ignorance.
We paint this new story and global painting together by taking high impact actions with outstanding changemakers, and vividly showcasing them in YL Magazine.
right at Home
Climate Crisis Resilient Region
All this talk about far away CO2, companies, government, waiting, frustrated, disempowered. No hands on action, no results for animals and planet.
But solutions for climate matters are at local level, and they add up hugely, as towns declare “climate emergency”. Now make them follow up with meaningful solutions!
Take a moment to play with the idea of shifting away from preventing climate crisis (it has begun) or creating change (which conservative, visionless people resist) to PROTECTING WHAT WE HAVE – the land, the food, the well-being, the peace, the culture … by strengthening that which sustains it – the land and the local community. Get it? It’s precisely what got neglected for profit. But now, in emergency, it is our right to implement it. No one can condemn us to a future of drought, poverty and violence. How daaare they? Bingo!
And it’s all hands-on, powered by people – by youth, and adult allies across generations.
- to stand together against catastrophe, restore local food and energy sovereignity, peace, prosperity independent, incorruptible
- requires social cohesion – that people are sane, have trust, appreciation for one another
- requires collective agreement – on unifying encompassing vision to create the GOOD next level collaborative society together
- requires co-creativity – to turn this into tangible action
For a teacher, subjects, school culture, the education landscape, this offers limitless opportunity. We pitch you a 70+ Good Policies Bundle to study, map and implement.
Media literacy is en vogue among educators, parents and funders. Usually, it means
- in the U.S. : tech skills

Use special Occasions
UNITED NATIONS Days help you package topics in a more interesting, meaning- and impactful way. They focus attention, energy and partnerships to create output reach and impact.
Our UNITED NATIONS Theme Days CALENDER of ACTION connects with forests, water, ocean, biodiversity, peace, girls, teachers, habitat, charity, mountains, wetlands, deserts, violence against women, youth skills, science for development, migrants, food … with role models and solution stories for each.
All these things take the issue of climate harmony far beyond vague CO2 belief bubbles to concrete truths and hands on work.
Use these occasions, pertaining UN websites’ resources, our hero*ines, your ideas to address this topic (in relation to climate change, and per se) with a special focus on solutions and people- / youth-powered action
Organize a creative activity, such as an artistic kaleidoscopic exposit, FUNdraiser, excursion, vertical food garden, pollinator campaign and vividly document for YL, social, news media
Connect with teachers, journalists, organizations – for greater reach and impact. It is a win-win for everybody.
- teachers enjoy UN Day occasions to treat topics
- media upgrade reporting with solutions and hero*ines
- organizations enrich their events with youth action
- cities, public libraries embrace your uplifting presence
Use your “Education Landscape”
Your region is full of partners, playing fields, opportunities. The concept of Education Landscape / Bildungslandschaft is making its way into communal policies. Many struggle to build meaningful connections between partners. Changemaking naturally facilitates exciting creative collaborations with journalists, organizations, organic farmers etc – powered by changemaker student clubs.
Use your local LearnScapes
Terrain, in our eyes, is a permaculture, bee and butterfly garden, feeding the canteen, and home to cultural and technical installations. Can you turn a nearby park, street, waterfront, an empty lot or walls into an edible landscape?
City council, farmers, civil society, businesses with terrain can win-win benefit. What dreams do your district‘s teenage changemaker crews want to make true?
As a teacher, I can do some cool activities. But for bigger projects I need a team. How can I create one?
Well, not only adults have to become different from the past 40 years. Also students need to be different from the students of the past 40 years.
Teenage hero*ines operating as changemaker student clubs at school show us how this works. The real TFF & FFF & PFF work is to cultivate a culture of full spectrum youth leadership at school. Welcome to our world!
Embed your work in the bigger framework of Youth Leadership
Make “creating a good world for all” part of learning culture,
powered by students on fire to do good for people and planet
Changemaker Student Clubs
are high impact student club running a wide scope of activities, strongly involving the student body. It is important that you know, respect and support them – so they can unfold their enormous and far-reaching superpowers, and you can collaborate.
Omni-presence at school as club, with HQ, FUNdraising stands, exhibits, presentations, fest actions, informs and involves the entire school community
Powered by students on fire
for positive change, like athletes
It’s not about the structure (a club), it’s about SPIRIT.
Hence, compulsory formal class setting activities can only achieve a very basic level – like with sport or music. Let the New Highly Gifted team up to unfold their skills, and they will act as role models and mentors for their peers for years, tuned to everybody’s favorite causes and inner clock.
Contributions to subjects, projects, fests are natural for young changemakers. They are your experts on what’s cooking on media, inspirational videos, speeches, your animators for group projects, and spokespeople for media.
Year-round multi-faceted action
A changemaker student club is not about protest criticizing the old dysfunctional but about implementing solutions that make the problems obsolete.
They lead projects with high societal impact, presence in public and media, contibute to subject teaching, involve the entire school community and education landscape, with win-win benefits for everyone involved.
Linking with the greater community beyond school
The club naturally connects with parents, citizenry, media, organizations, libraries, city, enterprises …
We seek a long-term program framework for our School development
Cool. We have some stuff that you may find useful. This will keep you busy and your people inspired.
