  • founder's note

    Dear Readers,

    We often hear the saying “The youth is our future” and this optimistic view of the youth makes all of us hopeful that there will be a bright future. But as a young person myself, living in this world right now, I think having the mentality that we are the future is not enough anymore. I think having the mentality of being the “now”, being part of the solution for the present day is what is needed right now.

     

    Having surrounded and connected with inspiring young people these days makes me think that we really are capable to change the world right now especially the fact that there are a lot of opportunities for skills and knowledge improvement present today. The freshness and innovative ideas of the youth should be the key indicator that we should take part of the decision making, program designs, project incubation, and social solutions. We should be empowered enough to stand up and be the voice.

     

    This issue of Change Mag brings you different youth-led social innovations and programs that are successful and are not just predicted to work in the future but are already creating change now. I hope this inspires you, whatever generation you belong, to work towards building a peaceful, sustainable “now”.

     

    To the youth, unleash your power and show the world that we are not just better for the future but we are also better for the now.

     

     

    Best,
