This project is very important to LEAP which organised the first edition in Helsinki last June and to this world … as it is being driven into hell by our decision makers’ limited capacity to influence anything on the global stage.
With internet and globalisation, we are de facto embarked on the same boat from Paris to Beijing, Johannesburg and Rio. We see today that we can’t trust the system invented 70 years to produce peace any longer. It is high time to create new tools empowering stakeholders of the planet (citizens), stakeholders of the future (young leaders)…
This initiative is not about youth being invited in global forums to clap nicely, discuss imposed topics and come to authorized conclusions. It’s about young leaders already actively involved in society from European and BRICS countries sitting around the same table and discussing their own priorities, sharing visions, identifying challenges and defining actions and tools to connect global leaders to their legitimate concern.
Empowering them is empowering policy makers too in fact… who totally lack legitimacy and democratic anchorage when it comes to global issues.
Instead of useless anti-globalisation demonstrations highlighting this lack of legitimacy, the EURO-BRICS youth prefer to contribute positively to global challenges and invite global leaders to listen to them.
At this stage they need your help. Whether on an individual basis or through your companies/organisations you can contribute to this needed effort of theirs… They are doing it for us all !
Here is their crowd-funding campaign…
