This article is about an idea. A thought, that came to me last year during the challenge future summit and that kept coming back to me whenever I recalled the events that took place and the people I met there.

To be honest, the whole experience was perfect and ideal to say the least. But the thing that got to me the most was seeing that huge number of people coming from far away countries with different backgrounds, cultures and religions and getting together for very similar objectives.

Then I got to talk to some of these people and I couldn't believe the harmony and camaraderie that we constructed in that really short amount of time. That was the biggest accomplishment of challenge future in my eyes, this capacity to focus on our similarities and the ability to cast the differences aside.

I guess what I am trying to say is that unity is a very important concept, and the day we realize that our problems can easily be solved together we just might change the world a bit.

My idea came from the things I witnessed during the summit, and I think we could make it work within the challenge future community.

There are a lot of universal economical, social, environmental issues that may seem to affect some of us more than they do the rest, but they still are common to a lot of countries and societies if not to all.

My idea is to work on printable posters that fight for a cause or hold awareness against an issue or have tips and to put them up for download on the website and have C:F chapters, local representatives and regular members of the challenge future community print them up and post them for the benefit of their local communities at the same time.

Could you imagine, one community, one issue, at the same time all over the world?

I am aware that the idea sounds simple, but I can't help but believe that it could bring the community closer and hold a lot of meaning. I think it is a possibility to communicate a message of unison and togetherness across the globe.

“We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided.” [1]

So who's with me?

I still remember ur this discussion we had in restaurant.. and we discussed about similar kind of idea as well..

1) problems are at one end and solutions are also available at another end... we just need to connect
2) awesome to do same activities everywhere.. its like drinking water is normal process we do daily.. but 100s of people drink 3 glasses of water on same date & same time... makes a news.. wer u can connect with people... revolution comes only if u connect with people + mass

Song is nice.. <3

I am with you.. just kick off.. but with deadline, so we dont need to worry about how to sustain... ;) ;)
