C:F Summit Anniversary

by C:F Team on 15th May, 2011 at 8:02 AM CEST

Dear C:F friends,

This time of the year is really special for all of us. One year ago, more than 250 youths, business and political leaders, professors and futurists from all around the world met in what has been a life-changing experience, an event bringing together leadership, enthusiasm, vision and passion.

Challenge:Future Summit 2010 has been the igniting spark that created and bonded the C:F community. Youths from 33 countries came together between May 13 to 18, 2010, in the beautiful town of Bled, Slovenia to celebrate the final stage of the Challenge:Future Global Innovation Competition, challenging the present, shaping the future and changing the world.

We have to mark this event and celebrate! One year ago we fell in love with Challenge:Future!

We had the time of our lives last year during the C:F Summit. From great workshops to amazing keynote speakers, from finalists presentations to breathtaking outdoor activities. Altogether it has been a special moment for everyone, wonderful memories, long-lasting friendships and the promise that together we do have the power to make a difference. And how better to present this unique adventure than through the eyes of Damla Aktan, C:F Alumni and Vice-President of the C:F Chapters Network. She tells us “A True Story: We are Here, Join our Future!

Sometimes, words cannot fully capture the entire atmosphere, feelings, emotions and relationships, the whole C:F Summit experience. Our beloved Sayanee, with her magic touch, prepared an anniversary clip to show everyone what happened no more than one year ago:

Semifinals submission period is approaching fast! We are so curious to see your ideas and we are eager to meet everyone at the Challenge:Future Summit 2012. One all-expenses-paid spot at this upcoming event will be reserved for the winner of “Mission Baikal: Protect and preserve!” quick challenge so make sure you’ll take this opportunity. And not to forget that the best video submitted in the Semifinals will send you straight to IVOH World Summit 2011 in upstate New York, US!

One great year has passed and we hope to see many of you making history at the next C:F Summit in March 2012! Would you like to be a part of it?

At this point, when we have seen with how much velocity we can accelerate, it is important to keep dreaming and not take turns from our so-far obvious goal-orientation! :) Keep dreaming, believing, and striving for impact and worldwide known excellence! We can, we will do this! M
