That world we left behind – that normality we cherished – was one of progress, global connectivity, fast paced lives, international cooperation, a life of community and fulfilling social interactions. But also a world of rampant consumption, greed, inequality, environmental destruction, of social and technological solitude. On our watch, the world decayed as injustice, prejudice, hatred and inequality prevailed.
Should we try to return to that supposed normality, or embrace this chance to start again?
Let’s build on the courage of a new generation of youth activists and leaders across the globe, and dare to do things differently. Our options are not only between hard binary opposites, nature versus development, surveillance versus freedom, isolation versus community, welfare state versus free market, globalization versus locality. Those are false choices.
Nothing happens overnight. We won’t solve climate change, undo mass inequalities, find homes, jobs, healthcare, education for everyone, end wars, restructure governments, or suddenly only elect leaders that have the courage to challenge the status quo.
But we can certainly do better than before.
We are all of us. Changes for Humanity is a collective passionate about bringing together ideas for change. Our belief is that change can happen at all levels, no matter how small. Changes we make today will impact the world for years to come, and that’s why we ask you to join us, acting in whatever way or form you think you can.
