Education is very important. It is the most important tool for development and it is the catalyst for all positive changes in societies.” Sir Fazle Hasan Abed

Education is unequivocally the bedrock of contemporary society. Challenge:Future (C:F) raises the eminence of education by providing a platform for the youth to share know-how and best practices – showcase new innovative solutions that promote sustainability and create new opportunities for youth. C:F has rallied a unique diversity of young social innovators, leaders, thinkers and changemakers working for a sustainable planet, supporting creative exchanges of ideas, culture, learning and most of all encouraging you to make real positive impact.

Now we have a question for you: How has the continuous supply of knowledge, information and inspiration from C:F added value to your professional development and learning abilities?

The best answers would be shared with educators at the 20th International CEEMAN Conference in South Africa, in September 2012 – where C:F Journeyman, Samuel Duru will be speaking on: “Innovations to Support the Educational Process.” In addition to that, the best answers will also be featured in the next edition of the C:F global publication: The Future Book.
Post your answers below until 31st of August.

Truly C:F has inspired so much and anytime I log in and check the buzz section, I become so fulflilled and encouraged.

In life we all want something, we want to receive but we have never thought of giving, giving and giving. I really felt depressed ahen I missed the C:F Summit 2012 because for me it was a life time opportunity to meet people that just only want to make a difference. I would always remain grateful to C:F .

C:F is more than a gathering of change makers. It is an assemblage of individuals that not only have a strong conviction that they can change their world but are also walking their talk.

It gladdens my heart to know that I am not alone in this struggle for the future and every time I log in to C:F I find that the struggle is still on and the weapons to fight this battle in on daily supply.

Thank you C:F for empowering me to create and co create a worthy future for the next generation

Professionally, CF has exposed me to world leaders in the field of sustainability and innovation, getting insights to build my own criteria and analysis of the status of our planet in these terms. Also, CF allowed me to participate in a TEDx event, improving skills of communication and showing to the world results of successful initiatives I have led in my life. This fact enhances a lot my CV, which has been appreciated by my employer at the moment of my current position in the Institute of Energy Economics and Rational Use of Energy at the University of Stuttgart in Germany. Thank YOU CF!!

The greatest power CF has is to give help spur thoughts into actions. Lots of us wish to change things around us. CF encourages the lots to translate wish into want! It ingites your determination to become the person playing in the playfield instead of being a sidewalk spectator who simply wished.

C:f opened my eyes so that I truly and deeply realized that I’m a part of the global community. Since people naturally look for some meaningful direction, C:f is here to help all of us find the way to a more wholesome, sustainable and creative learning and collaboration. Involvement in the online global competitions increases the freedom and capacity of people to choose how to be educated, what to learn and how to apply that learning in order to bring innovation to life. Therefore, when I first time decided to take action and participate in one of the Quick Challenges I discovered the immense power and value of global collaboration and joyful effort. That experience made me feel more engaged to benefit myself and the rest of the community and it also inspired me to be more socially committed and practice environmentally concise habits. With C:f’s invaluable support I was able to meet the Nobel Peace Prize Laureates such as Muhammad Yunus, the Dalai Lama and Rigoberta Menchu and get my own empowering message out to the world. I'd love to see more organizations to work with a similar level of fun, meaning, quality and excellence as C:f presents. Thank you C:f!

Challenge:Future in many ways changed the way I think and behave. It is not just 'another' global platform you can be part of (and believe there are many of them), but a community with true zest and ideals to make this world a better place for everyone; no exceptions - but radical inclusiveness.
In a way, C:F is a lifestyle. Once you spend enough time with your C:F fellows from all around the world, you start paying attention more and more to each global issue and they seem to multiply each day - and that makes you feel scared, but you know that you are not alone in this world and that someone in the opposite corner of the planet - your fellow, has made a little change . So, you are touched by that little change and you start making little by little - by yourself: changes! In an instance of time, you have become more than just aware of all the inequalities in the world, the injustice, the climate issues, the social exclusion. Immense strength hits you when you think:" Yes, I am part of this amazing community of superwomen, superman, supergirls and superboys - a community of superheroes". My eyes are wide opened with C:F, more than ever I think. I feel that I am part of something really important and I love every minute with C:F. Truly motivational community - many stories to be told about it. Cheers C:F!:)
