How generation 2012 can change the world: Future Fuel tries to find out!

Unbelievable but true, the end of the project is near! We have been trying to come up with innovative ideas to improve a very small part of the world and hope we have inspired you. While talking to one of the participants is our Creative Network Session 2.0, we found out that we are definitely not the only ones. In fact, an initiative is working on a very inspiring project to find out what the current generation can learn from the older generation in order to improve the world. I’m talking about Future Fuel, set up by Anne Walraven from Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

This initiative has drawn my attention since she one of our generation and taking action. She points out that there are so many crises that are mentioned everyday and everyone is talking about that something has to change. She tries to find out what the younger generation of 2012 can learn from the older generation in order to take action and actually do something about these problems in the world. To achieve this, she travels around the world to speak to inspiring role models that can share their experiences and expertise and pass it forward.

The aim is to interview 15 role models of which a few can be ticked off already. An overview of the role models and the ones that have been interviewed already marked in bold, can be found below:

  • Paul Gilding
  • Jane Goodall
  • Peter Voser
  • Bill McKibben
  • Louise Fresco
  • Thomas Friedman
  • Julia Hill
  • Jeremy Rifkin
  • Herman Wijffels
  • Prof. Dr. Konrad Steffen
  • Roz Savage
  • Yvo de Boer
  • Jeroen Jansen
  • Alec Loorz
  • Severn Suzuki
  • William Kamkwamba
  • Aart van Veller
  • Ekta Kothari
  • Angaangaq

Linking these interviews to our project, I really liked the interview with Jane Goodall, is a British primatologist, ethologist, anthropologist, and UN Messenger of Peace (wikipedia.co.uk,2012). You can find a compilation of the interview below.

Please have a look at her website by clicking here, where you can support this initiative and suggest questions to ask in future interviews, how cool is that?!

The website itself is in Dutch, however most interviews are in English. Click here for the webpage with the interviews, and click on the link under the picture of the role model.
