Hi everyone loving Young Changemakers!
I need your help to manifest what I have pulled together with ALL my global relations : a world-premiere superstar program with the FINEST YOUTH-LEADERs on the planet with the most amazing audience at the biggest stage:
IYONS - World Conference of International Youth Organizations
in Chennai, India, from 24-6 July 2015, with 140 nations' finest young changemakers, mentored by Nobel Peace Prize laureate Kailash Satyarthi, former President of India Dr. Abdul Kalam and UNICEF Ambassador Angelina Jolie.
I know you loved Xiuhtezcatl address the UN high-level event on climate change past Monday, cheer on Rachel Parent to topple Monsanto, are baffled by Divest Harvard's Chloe Maxmin mobilize hundreds of colleges to divest from fossil fuels, are touched by the world's youngest headmaster Babar Ali, moved to tears by Emma Mogus donating 77,000 books to aboriginal communities to lower suicide rates, and enthralled by Adora Svitak re-defining young people of today ... they are ALL confirmed speakers!

To maximize their impact beyond the speech, I have arranged
- Best all star line-up EVER - usually each is the celebritiy speaker
- 3-day visual presence to the entire audience in Youth Camp
- Trainings by the Heroes for changemakers from 140 nations
- Outreach to education nationwide
- Massive interaction with media, changemakers, schools, celebrities
- World-premiere 1 WEEK retreat UNITING the youth for a YL Immersion, school and college presentations, designing the Change Generation Rising leadership program for youth at school in 18 languages!!!
18 MEGA HERO SPEAKERS to the assembly + webcast
Yes, there is also Cassandra Lin, raising $150,000 through grease-to-biofuel recycling, Avalon Theisen teaching how a change of diet saves species and ecosystems, Robyn Hamlyn, teaching how she made 27 cities make water public, a human right and ban bottled water, Rhiannon Tomtishen, who achieved the "impossible", making corporations turn away from deforestation and conflict palm oils, and Usha Vishwakarma - training self-defense and patrolling the streets to save young girls from rape and murder. They are ALL there, and more... Abbie, Hassan, Laura, Maja, Oliwia, making ecocide a crime... and Eric presenting on the new phenomenon Youth Leadership and how to spark, sustain and amplify it in schools through YOUTH-LEADER.
On top, they are all united and visible for ALL 3 DAYS in
THE YOUTH CAMP space next to main auditorium

- stands for each youth and campaign
- 30+ workshops, skype sessions, hosted conversations
- media interaction, celebrity photoshoots
- own program distributed to audience and guests
Finally, some of them are spending A FULL WEEK at the
YOUTH-LEADER IMMERSION / RETREAT 28 July - 3 August
It is the first time that these young Gandhis of today get together
- to meet, share and bond for alliances
- for school and college presentations
- for concerts
- for co-designing the Change Generation Rising leadership program for young people at school, fit for use as non-formal curriculum across subjects and units in 18 languages
This is huge... for the youth, for IYONS, for the world, for youth leadership in general, - and for YOUTH-LEADER.
