!This is a call to action!
We need to change the direction of our future and reform education around climate change and pollution!
This is what Youthtopia is all about! A movement started by Melati Wijsen to create a platform designed to bring young changemakers together and give them the tools to make a difference. Youthtopia has roots from Melati's Middle School days when, together with her sister Isabel Wijsen, set out to ban single use plastic bags in Bali. Little did they realize this was only the start of the adventure which would lead to the creation of Youthtopia.
While on a mission to ban plastic bags in Bali Melati and Isabell found the biggest problem was a lack of education around the topic. Not only a lack of education for waste management, climate change, but also a lack of education on how to become a successful changemaker and how to create a movement. After successfully banning plastic bags, Melati decided to embark on a journey to change the root of what she found to be the biggest problem in today's world. Education.
Today’s population might consist of over 60% adults but children are 100% of the future. This is the exact mindset you need if you are looking not just to make change but to make lasting change!
Youthtopia now has a community of over 5 million people who represent 72 countries and 185 top youth leaders from around the world! They offer over 40 courses on their website around all kinds of skills and topics to learn from, everything from Public Speaking, Film Making, Permaculture to Community Building And Surviving Crises!
