The Era Of Youth
A Vital Moment In Time — Turning The Tide
Youth has the ability, through connection, imagination and technology to halt the inequity and misplaced intentions of older generations.
Older generations have, however unintentionally, surrounded ‘opportunity’ and ‘fairness for all’ with walls of protectionism and selfishness. They’ve hijacked these ideas in plain sight. They’ve made self serving gods and false concepts.
Yes there needs to be a movement. But we don’t have time so we must make it a movement of movements. A holistic movement that’s open and honest, clearly put and human.
In this world it’s now possible to build a platform for opportunity. We have the need and we have the technology we just need the global will. A movement that’s owned NOT by any one person, any single organisation or any ‘expert’ interest.
One that’s owned by everyone.
This movement needs to learn from the best models and the most global/open technologies. Brac and Blockchain, The 17 Global Sustainability Goals and EVERYONE who cares about these challenges. Whatever. Wherever. Whoever.
There can be no agenda other than the best outcome for future generations — the youth are already full of energy and ideas but they lack the opportunities at scale. And they lack the knowledge of the many missteps they can make. The ones we made.
We need to connect anything and everyone, every idea and every grain of opportunity to make this work. Above all we have to put it plainly.
That’s the challenge.
Awakening An Entrepreneurial Revolution
We are catastrophically well advanced — 40 years into deeply embedded institutional suicide. A global top down silo’d implementation of all business systems. Directly opposed to nature’s bottom up/open reality.
“The major problems in the world are the result of the difference between how nature works and the way people think” ― Gregory Bateson
Because this is happening at an exponential rate there’s a speeding up of a point of no return. A tipping point beyond which (potentially) we won’t recover.
Through innovation, entrepreneurship and ‘technologies’ it should be our focus to help YOUTH* break the hold of older professionals — those who are contributing to sustaining the broken models. In particular education and the systems that enable aid to the less privileged.
“The investment in learning communications technology (LCT) doubled every 7 years from 1946 to 2030 (4000 fold) that makes the industrial revolution miniscule by comparison.”
*By some calculations half the world is under 30 — this varies in some European countries where half the population are over 45.
