I have never really thought about the future until Until two months
ago an announcement was made at our school about one girl. She
was seriously ill. She had cancer. A very aggressive form of it. The
doctors in our country did everything they could for her. Still she was
dying. Her only hope was the treatment that she could get in
Germany. She needed minimum of 50 thousand Euros to be able to
go and soon. The price of the human life. It’s a lot of money here. So
her parents started raising funds wherever they could and
eventually came to our school. Nowadays we have almost got used
to such stories because after the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Station accident the rate of cancer
among children in Belarus has increased 13 times. This power station is situated almost at the
boarder of our Republic and right after the accident the wind was blowing north and carrying
radioactive clouds in our direction So there are articles in newspapers, announcements on TV,
Internet about kids dying of cancer who need urgent help.
My organization, ISEC—the International Society for Ecology and Culture—has been promoting economic localization for more than three decades: not as an ‘add-on’ to business as usual, but as a deep-rooted and systemic alternative. As we see it, communism, socialism and today’s corporate capitalism all suffer the same fundamental—and, ultimately, fatal—flaws. They are all top-down, centralized, ‘one-size-fits-all’ systems that, to a greater or lesser extent, both suppress the best of what is human and deny the first law of nature: the law of diversity. Localization emerges from a very different worldview: one that celebrates diversity; that values different ecosystems and climates and cultures; and that sees the vital importance of community.
” I began my career as an economics professor but became frustrated because the economic theories I taught in the classroom didn’t have any meaning in the lives of poor people I saw all around me. I decided to turn away from the textbooks and discover the real-life economics of a poor person’s existence.”
Why could not advantage be taken of a time of relative calm and quiet to investigate and try to solve a question of such immense and worldwide importance, both from the humane and Christian stand-point?

“it is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.” ~ Nelson Mandela

It was indeed a long Competition but the journey we have ahead of us is more exciting. Sustainable development should always be our first priority. Let’s all come together, unite and make the world a better place for us and future generations.
Without creativity, and innovation for improvement we can’t have a better chance to manage the change that is inevitable. Let’s change the world with your idea/project. Timing is everything. Do what you love now......
A new opportunity to share my project globally, interact, improve and discuss ideas with young entrepreneurs. The opportunity to offer a sustainable project to people in need and to promote alternative resources.
It is a fabulous privilege to remain with Youth Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition during studentship and after graduation. I call this platform “A second school”, where one realizes one’s skills for the service of humanity.
The Youth Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition helps young people from developing countries not only to have a say about the problems they face but also take initiative and drive progress with the help of innovative ideas and projects.
This campus keeps my heart warm noticing the fact that innovation is being considered in all levels, that different young idea-people from all nationalities and all mindsets, help each other to form a big living organism that creates value for humanity. That we believe in change.
The happiness to see that hope is metamorphosing into actual change with the many interesting projects on the platform. I get a lot more inspiration to improve on my projects as well. I find a great percentage of intelligent and wise people, with the opportunity to get in touch with them.
I have to say it’s a free mentorship that tells everything you need in detail. From building idea to the business canvas model, turning your idea into a real project and they are amazing that you don’t feel left behind though Entrepreneurship Campus is an online platform. With them, you are guided.
The entrepreneurship campus has opened my eyes to see the incredible work young leaders are doing across the globe and the amazing people supporting their ventures. The online courses give entrepreneurs a chance to learn, make adjustments and improve on their ideas and projects.
