With the growing long-overdue compassion occurring in our society today, there are numerous ideas being emplaced and action being taken. People worldwide are speaking out on issues that have been suppressed for generations, unsaid, and even unknown. Whether it is the #BlackLivesMatter movement, the fight against police brutality, or notions about the general approach to providing better conditions for minorities and women – society is again seeing a battle for equality and justice. With this in mind, our workshop aims to help the international community recognize the power that youth hold for change in our rapidly moving world. We want participants to be aware of youth’s antipathy and the lack of inspiration and growth due to our utilitarianism and neglective educative systems (especially traditional Asian curriculums), and methods to approach the situation.
Through this workshop, participants will develop communication skills and solution/analytical based thinking; in creating solutions to address these issues. Easily linked to our organization (Global Youth), our initiative could be replicated across the globe as our organization focuses on developing subordinate initiatives that dictate to the same purpose but nurture specific generations to help specific countries/areas (Generation Z; ex. “Manila Z” or “Busan Z“).
