International Youth Day

This blog post isn’t a new or research, but a reflection of my view about youth and my experience in the attempt of generating structural for a sustainable society:

What do we mean when we say Youth? Is that a age-restricted definition? Is a lifestyle? A way of thinking?

🔋For me youth is…
A state of energy- is like an electric generator, in the way of transforming ideas into actions!

Back in the days during a visit of the Iguassu Falls when I was a energy engineering student… Miss you guys!

💡A state of the mind- when you aren’t afraid about walking forward, risking and taking altruist decisions: everything or nothing!

When we were creating the bases of what a youth climate change commission might do… This idea would become of what nowadays is know as the Youth Group of Parana 3 Basin (CJBP3)

🎨A state of diverse emotions- when your are driven by deep feelings to disrupt current trends and to look for your own pathway … Giving meaning to your existence.

I could keep writing the whole day… Anyway I’ll highlight some interesting actions and youth groups that are working for a new civilizatory paradigm, apparently with simple actions but building a solid pathway towards sustainability:
