Initiative & workshops
At the beginning of 2010, I took part in the "Growth in Change" conference in Vienna, where more than 500 participants racked their brains for new solutions to our challenges.
how new solutions to our challenges could look like.
I looked into the large ballroom and noticed that not one young person was invited.
"How are we going to solve our challenges if we leave the young people out?", I asked myself at the time.
Research revealed that it was perfectly "normal" not to invite students or young people to conferences, congresses, etc.
So, together with my wife and with equity, I founded the initiative schülerInnen.gestalten.wandel. to involve young people as equal partners, to give them a voice and to prove to all sceptics that these are talented people with great ideas!
