C:F IMPACT #2 - C:F Voices Kicked-off

by C:F Team on 7th July, 2016 at 11:14 AM CEST

In June 2016, we announced the C:F Voices initiative, a new initaitive of self-drive that was announced and proposed to the community. The initaitive was officially kicked off with the release of four consecutive videos on the official facebook page of challenge:Future, and the first came from Turkey. 

The videos were released as a response to the brutal terrorism actions that took place at the International Istanbul Ataturk Airport on the 28th of June, 2016 and which took the lives of hundreds and injured many more. The first video was sent by Damla Aktan, C:F summit alumna and senior and well recognized leader within the challenge:Future family. In her message, she addressed the community that we are the children of peace. She sent her message in Turkish and English, and it is available for watching at the following LINK.

Damla's message was followed by C:F VP, Chorouk Haisni from Morocco who followed an hour after Damla with a message that violence is the language of the weak. She addressed her message of peace in English and also her native language. Damla and Chorouk were followed by Stefan Alijevikj, C:F president who pointed out that this was not the future he imagined he would grow, and that it is peace, harmony and coexitence that can hold us together.

Only few days after the happenings in Turkey, more acts of terrorism followed in Istanbul, Baghdad and Dhaka that were a further schok for our community, and for the whole world, after which C:F chapters' network leader and summit alumnus from Pakistan, Faisal Imtiaz sent his message. Faisal stated that as community, the challenge:Future have always been an example of coexistence among its members, aside their different religious, cultural, political or other backgrounds; that regardless further world developments - we will stay united.

The video messages have reached an audience of approx 13,000 people on social media, and have 1,300 views after their release in the first days.

The C:F Voices remain an open initaitive where each and everybody can join and send their message to the world. More actions will follow in the forthcoming period. Feel free to send a buzz if you want to submit your video message or propose different action that you want to kick off under C:F VOICES.

Robert Neumann-Krüger,

Violence is realy the language of the weak.. Saddened that this is becoming our every day reality. Shock. And ignorance is the last thing we should practice right now.
Heart-broken also to hear the news from Nica, France today. Very very disturbing.... Like a show of the madman. Eclipse of the rational mind.

I greet your initiative of launching video messages under C:F Voices. Your voices are pure and soft, and if the world had more such soft and well minded people like yourselves as leaders, it would be a much better place to live in. Keep your unique energy everyone!

Greetings from Germany,
Robert
