Sign up for action!

Thoroughly inspired by the contribution, energy and ideation of our Youth Advisory Board members, Summit participants and Ambassadors, Action Team was born to give more C:F members a chance to contribute, lead, grow and that too at our own time and interest!

In our last post, we already had many of you wanting to join the Action Teams. Harshit and Darko wanted to be a C:F Geek, while Jatin, Saad and Jude wanted to be the glue of our community by being the C:F writers!

This time, we thought of telling you more about what it is like to be in an Action Team. Who best to tell you about it than our dear C:F members themselves! You will hear them talk about what it is like to be a C:F Explorer, Judge, Writer or a Runner! Let's hear from them - voices of Challenge:Future coming from all corners of the world!

Voice from Africa

Working along other YABs virtually on something so concrete and real, did bring the realization of being part of an open community as mentioned by fellow YABs. Although I could not be at the summit, the friendship made with fellow C:F YABs did keep my motivation checked.

~ Nubi from Nigeria, C:F Youth Advisory Board 2010

Voice from Australia

For the C:F Summit 2010, it was great to meet with participants from all over the world, not only because of what we had in common - a passion to develop creative solutions to important problems - but also because of the our differences. Indeed, by combining our different experiences, skills and knowledge, our impact can be far greater than the sum of the impacts we can have by acting alone.

~ Nat from Australia, C:F Competition 2009/2010 competition finalist and winner of IEDC Challenge

Voice from Asia

As a C:F Youth Judge, it was a long process of first trying to understand the core innovation, and then constant questioning and evaluation to see how and whether the parts fit. Make no mistake, it's a huge responsibility and really not half as glamorous as it seems. But if you'd like a challenge (and a chance to look through the eyes of the "best of C:F"), the rewards are definitely worth it.

~ Aik from Singapore, C:F Finals 2010 Youth Judge, Youth Advisory Board 2010

Who could have thought that a guy from Poland, Croatia, Russia, India and others would become my really good friends and from whom i will learn that there is more to life than just race, language and color. I learnt how a small idea coming from a person who dreams to change the world can become the prerogative of millions by will power and connecting to people.

~Saad from Pakistan - C:F Summit Youth Speaker, Youth Advisory Board 2010

My vision for C:F India is to empower the self-conscious activities within and connect Indians with other C:F chapters and to keep one world concept alive! My relation with C:F is like mother-child. C:F gives opportunity to connect with the world. I learnt about different cultures, positivity, open innovation, love, true meaning of leader, and learnt to express & share.

~ Jatin from India, C:F India Chapter and C:F Summit 2010 participant

Voice from Europe

Being part of YAB was a way to connect with the active people on the platform, make friends and get to know each other better even before meeting in Bled. Acting upon the ideas and giving recommendations for the way of voting and the organisation of the competition made me feel like I am part of the idea as a whole.

~ Krste from Macedonia, C:F Summit 2010 participant, Youth Advisory Board 2010

Next week when we post about Action Team, it'll be a BUZZ for the Action Team Project #1. So look out for it. Are you excited? We would love to bring unique experiences for our Action Teams so that we are continuously exposed to new and challenging ideas. This time we ask you to share with us:
How else can C:F Action Teams help you grow, learn and bring out your innovative self ?

hhmmm Let me see... How about virtual webinars or discussion panels where the active Action Team takes on the lead to discuss an issue and invite everyone around the world to join in?

What other crazy, learning and fun ideas do you all have? ;-)

WOW! this is so great! like what Dharmesh said, i am deeply much honoured and proud to be with the C:F community. Not only this will give me the initiative to think and act more for the future, but this will also help me gain more friends who will always work with me for the cause of saving the future for the next generations to come!

Cheers to everyone for having a job well done and I am so excited about the Action teams too! I will continue to pray for more active leaders from all parts of the world who will also work with us soon.

Time has come to say that "The trapped energies and the suppressed initiatives need to be freed and properly harnessed."

I want to appreciate each effort of C:F in this direction from bottom of my heart.

Rock the World...
