Our youth have so much potential to create a future where everyone lives their purpose and earns a living without harming the environment or other humans. They don't have to believe that there has to be "acceptable damage" or "winners and losers" in our society. They can create it to serve all, for the betterment of all, without leaving anyone out. They can build and rebuild from the ground up or on top of what's already there. The options are endless. Welcome to Youth Climate Economy Ventures, where we're engaging today's youth at the intersection of humanity, climate and economy to help them envision, design and build a sustainable, diverse, inclusive, and dynamic future. Read about how we started and what we've already accomplished.
In 2021, most of our activities will remain online. We will be kicking off with the climate art contest in January-February, we'll be preparing for and celebration Earth Month March-April, and from there you'll have to stay tuned.
Currently activities are being organized out of southern Illinois targeting local students, but everyone and anyone is encouraged to participate. We're going to be creating "templates" for students, parents, teachers and groups to use to coordinate their own activities. We're going to be getting students involved to help lead and drive the initiatives. All of our creating of new climate ventures and target actions will take place on the MakeProjects Youth Climate Economy Ventures Hub.
