The power of a good idea!
If you know me well, you probably already heard me speaking super passionately about Jonah Wittkamper who is a legend in the international youth movement and is without any question of the people who most influenced me in what I do today.
He started with the Global Youth Action Network, who most of you may know, and he have inspired and empowered a bunch of us youth leaders out there right now, who are changing the world acting in different fronts, movements, causes.
And not satisfied about all the incredible impact he already had in the world, for 10 years he has been working to make his big idea come true and alive. And I’m currently in NYC, having the incredible privilege of being part of this dream coming true.
I’m currently at The Nexus: Global Youth Summit on Innovative Philanthropy and Social Entrepreneurship, and I need to say it’s being one of the most rewarding experiences for me. A bunch of incredible people from completely different worlds, getting together to seek ways we can truly related in deeper levels, trying to collaborate in more meaningful and innovative ways.
I highly recommend you to check out the website of the event: http://nexusyouthsummit.com/ And to try to catch up a bit of this incredible atmosphere through twitter following the hashtag: #nexussummit
I am very excited also that after lunch I will be joining Adam Braun (from Pencils of Promise), Sophia Bush (Actress and Philanthropist) and Yael Cohen (from Fuck Cancer) on a panel to discuss Youth Movements: Transformational Change.
I’m looking forward to the incredible things that will come out of this blast!
