A global crisis. A lost generation? Not if we can help it!
Yeap, it's true... things are not in good shape, our economy is failing. As young adults, we are finding ourselves in challenging situations. In response, we are embracing our entrepreneurial spirit by creating our own jobs, engaging in social enterprises, and establishing support systems that strengthen our intention of success.
How do we excel in this environment when it seems that the odds are against us? We forget the old model. It worked for our parents, but things are not the same any more. It's going to take a lot more, including basic ingredients of courage, passion, innovation, collaboration, sustainability and good intention (forget greed, it's not taking our world on a good path).
Words from a citizen of Cairo, ¨Occupy more, find each other, build larger and larger networks and keep discovering new ways to experiment with social life, consensus, and democracy. Discover news ways to use these spaces, discover new ways to hold on to them and never give them up again. Resist fiercely when they are under attack, but otherwise take pleasure in what you are doing, let it be easy, fun even.¨
Conclusion: Let's embrace challenges as opportunities to do great things of which we are proud of as a generation!
