James Piecowye thinking out loud

Ideas, inspiration and a bit of random.

The power of youth!

Posted on | April 27, 2010 | No Comments

The single greatest problem today is not listening to our youth!

Why is that an issue?

We professors, we bureaucrats, we parents, we …. are truly bankrupt of creative ideas.

What we do have is a means to implement ideas but what we lack are ideas, new innovative,creative ideas.

Look at Greece! How do they fix their financial problems? Loans! Throwing more bankrupt ideas at a problem is no solution.

The environment! We have big problems! How can we fix it?

Has anyone bothered to ask our youth? Does anyone want to listen to our youth? NO, what do the youth know!

I spoke with 7 kids aged between 10 and 12 about their take on the environment and how they are looking at things, the conversation gives me hope!
