FIRST YOUTH CONSULTATION

Lead the
educational
revolution

Youth Talks is a massive collective intelligence initiative supporting the development of new Humanistic Education models.

MISSION

The Foundation’s mission is to develop and promote new models of Humanistic Higher Education for a sustainable society.

The complexity of the environmental, economic, and societal challenges we are facing is testing the limits of our current top- down educational models. They appear obsolete because they are no longer adapted to the challenges youth are facing but also because they are based on and convey values that do not seem to make sense anymore for the new generations. These models must be replaced by bottom-up approaches that will embrace and enable young people’s own and new priorities.

These observations are especially true when it comes to higher education.

VISION

Higher education models must be reshaped to empower young people to meet the challenges of their time.

Youth has always been confronted with difficulties. But today’s challenges are of a distinct magnitude: growing inequalities, climate change, biodiversity losses, sanitary crisis, energy crisis, A.I. revolution, to name but a few.

IMPACT
