Young people are a key to find sustainable and common solutions to the problems – climate change, environmental degradation, social inequities…– we face today, youthinkgreen organises the 1st World Youth Sustainability Summit this May (10.-20.05.2013) in Berlin.
We are the future. Thus we shall ask ourselves how we want to live in this future and how we want to create it!
Our current ways of living pose problems for our future. We know that we have to rethink and change them. Besides, as young people from all over the world, you have different perspectives to offer which, brought together, can spring concrete solution models.
Which lifestyle do I support for today – tomorrow – the future? How can the individual live? In which aspects are politics, economy and civil society responsible for the organisation of a humane life? Doesn’t the wish for a future socially and ecologically secured belong to the catalogue of human rights?
Coming from all around the world, experts, representatives of sustainable ways of living and young people will come together to draft a common position paper on the topic “Youth and Sustainability in Everyday Life – Challenge, Reflect on and Develop New Global Ways of Living” .
You want your voice to be heard, come and join the Summit and movement.
Be part of it!
