USER GROUPS

that benefit of High Impact Youth Leadership

to add purpose to daily life, the workplace, and better achieve personal and professional aspirations

Students

experience worldview change on the powers that children and youth can unfold – also en masse at school – as concrete vision for what they can achieve together as a generation – and with which steps to quickly conquer schools, public spaces, media, the hearts of millions, and activate parents and neighborhood. We practice core media and methods, local and global partners, young people’s many personal benefits and how to start the same day.

Citizens

gain a new worldview on children and youth around them, at schools and worldwide. They gain new hope, competence and opportunities for positive change that they can pass on to many people  – with low threshold, , informal, at home and work.

Teachers

gain new worldview of children, youth, students, school, and how decisive teachers are for positive change, and how school can effortlessly better achieve its societal purpose – to 95% by empowered students united in Changemaker Clubs – and get access to many practical materials, methods, partners, community and long-term support.

Parents

gain new worldview of (their) kids’ and youth’s potentials, hope for the future, finest role models, media and resources for their children, for family activities, and methods to spark and live positive change at schools – their children’s daily hangout, and supportive community and global relations to evolve skills and relations to pursue professional paths and make a living aligned with their values.

Companies

learn of many new opportunities to engage as company, staff teams or individually; funding and in-kind, globally for high impact projects, also long-term and challenging; locally for the young generation at schools.

Public Librarians

learn of highly attractive contents, media, options, speakers and workshops on young hero*ine role models and ways to involve diverse user groups – family, children, youth, teachers, adults – for new forms of interaction with their user community, for a “create a good world for all” LearnSpace of their co-creative community centre and as a means to collaborate with young Changemaker Teams at all their district’s schools; keyword: outer school Headquarter! 

City Councillors

gain new worldview, vision and feasible model solutions for an active citizenry, animation of public space, positive media culture – by activating the young generation – and how to use their access to resources and relations (such as knowledge of the region’s resources, needs and potentials, partners, schools and media) to kick off cascading activities that can be taken up and continued by self-organized teams of youth, citizens and professionals. 

Civil Society

gains new understanding of young people as individuals and en masse at school as powerful stakeholder for positive change, driver of active citizenship, as well as media and methods to better connect with youth and schools via Youth Leadership, SDGs, role models, enabling project-oriented and self-organized learning – and how (members of) organizations can play a precious role in the Education Landscape.

Wealthholders, Funders, Donors

learn of a new mass phenomenonyet unknown in Europe but urgently needed and wanted by everyone that sees it – and  what practical steps they can take to invest in youth leadership – for example at schools and elsewhere (reserves, refugee camps, orphanages…) – also by activating their far-reaching networks.

Celebrities and 'Privileged' People

can experience how they can use their privileges in ways to boost hero*ines and action through their followers, media presence, access to ‘elites’, to other ‘celebrities, privileged people, media makers – via media, through campaigns, PR, financially, with perks for followers, also in-kind with spaces for workshops, camps, prizes and more.

Owners of Places

of ho(s)tels, cafés, eco- and community centres, organic stores, family restaurants, markets, companies, parks, mobile spaces like tram, subway, train, airplane – and how they can serve as LearnSpace that inspires people for youth leadership and enables them to do good, and enables new forms of interaction with customers and user community.

To serve most common needs, challenges and popular topics, we have bundled our expertise in four formats.
We can also adapt and create something for your specific focus topic or region.
