Preparing youth for what’s coming

I train young people (students or not) to deal with the complex social and environmental crisis so they can be ready for a working life with purpose while learning how to have a sustainable impact on society.

Currently, the curricula are mostly build to address the needs of societies based on more or less infinite growth and fossil energies. Even though some programs are integrating elements of sustainability, we are still far from a systemic change. We are training students to learn skills that will be useful but no one today can predict to what extend these skills will actually be useful and no one knows how their future environment will look like in a few decades.

Based on 10 years of field experience in the sustainability as an impact entrepreneur, I have decided to create a training to prepare the youth to the field reality.

Who are the pioneers actually solving problems? How do we cope with climate distress (solastagia)? How do we stay focus and persistent when the world seems to collapse? How can we overcome obstacles with creativity? The unique learning experience I have created allow participants to integrate the skills required to become ethical team members by practicing authentic communication, top creative execution and caring approach.

We explore together how to focus and work with the available tools, as well as to develop creativity and self-confidence to manage our climate change stress and challenges. Learning more from the impact sphere, meeting and networking with other impact entrepreneurs is also an important part of the experience.

Lectures and workshops

Some of my favorite topics are:
- Back to basics: what’s your ethic?
- Creativity in entrepreneurship: pioneering and piloting
- Team work with impact: authentic communication
- Execution with impact: how will you really get there?
- Sustainability evaluation of a project, a company: rethink value
- How do you finance your sustainable impact?
- Handling pressure: do not meditate.
- Self empowerment: the no-time mindset
- The real network: where is your tribe?

I am happy to share my innovative approach through conferences, lectures, or by running a Sustainability and Impact Training to your school or your university where all these aspects can be explored more in depth.


Sustainable and Impact Training

The learning experience I have created dynamically combines workshops (with roles games), sustainable challenges and events.

The outcomes and the spirit of the first Sustainability and Impact Training created at Y-Kampus-Tampere University of Applied Sciences in Finland is presented in more details on this platform.

What participants from Tampere University of Applied Sciences say:

« To sum up, joining and contributing to both two sessions of Sustainability and Impact Club is one of the most sensible decisions I have ever made during my studies. » Song T. - International business
« I did not only learn so much about local sustainability efforts in Tampere through all the meetings and discussions; the topics covered in session 1 and the resources shared on our Whatsapp group gave me the decisive input for my Master’s thesis research. » Tatjana B. - Leadership for change program
« I have realized, by writing this paper, that my eco-anxiety has been drastically decreasing. I have been getting so much involved and busy with the challenges that I didn’t have as much time as before to feel anxiety by feeling useless. It allowed me to control and balance this energy overflow, recycling it into motivation and determination. » Juliette C. - Exchange student, Sciences Po Paris

« The most inspirational about meetings with entrepreneurs was that they were showing that it is possible to launch successful working business that could make a change. It is unfortunately rare to get to know about these examples in everyday life, thus it was so important to hear about them from real entrepreneurs. » Maria V. - 3d year Energy & Environment Engineering

« The most valuable gift that I got was how this process taught me to understand how important it is to listen and not reject - because of being experienced and “on a mission”. [...] The club provided me an opportunity to grow as a person and artist, and as I mentioned in an earlier feedback about the club (session 1): it should be mandatory for every student. » Tina J. - Photographer and video artist
« I have improved my team working skills, and my professional behavior. Besides that, the club also made me have a contact with the entrepreneurial world which helped me build entrepreneurial skills and values. » Raysa F. - Leadership for change program
« Thanks to this discussion I realized that I have more impact that I thought in my daily environment. » Meredith C. - Leadership for change program
« From a team working perspective I learned to rely on my team rather than trying to push myself too much to finish a task. It was actually a great feeling to have this kind of trust in my group, which usually lacks in similar type of projects I’ve had to do during my studies. This is probably due to the fact that we were all here voluntarily and working on a challenge that inspired us all. It was a lot of hard work but extremely rewarding when I reached my goals, and not only did I reach them, I exceeded them as well. » Amanda P. - 3d year Energy & Environment Engineering
« I really enjoyed the program that you taught and led last spring. Your passion and compassion for sustainability is truly inspiring. » Robert G. S. Jr. - International Business, Thesis about meta data analysis of deforestation in the Amazon, and Sustainable Business Management program
