Often we have great ideas but we don’t know what to do with them and where to put them. So we just forget about them until someone or something reminds us again.
We are happy that we can offer you a platform now to share your ideas so they don’t get lost. And the good thing about it is that these ideas could potentially be realized and turned into real projects!
However, other times you really want to help but you just can’t think of an idea… So we want to provide you with some inspiring video clips to help you come up with your own idea! There are many great sources out there and we want to share those two with you.
Nancy Duarte: You Can Change The World
“Deep insight of you, every single one of you has the most powerful device known demand, and that’s an idea. A single idea, from the human mind, it can start a ground swallow, it can be a flashpoint for a movement and it can actually rewrite our future. But an idea is powerless if it stays inside of you…”
“…If you communicate an idea in a way that resonates, change will happen, and you can change the world…”
“…The future isn’t a place that we’re gonna go, it’s a place that you get to create!”

Charity: water – Water Changes Everything
“Water, it’s life’s most basic need. But there is a water crisis in our world. Seriously, a crisis. Nearly 1 billion people live without clean drinking water, it’s happening all over the world…”
“…It ‘s a water crisis because it starts with water. But water affects everything; education, health, poverty, and especially women and children…”
“…We can end the water crisis in our lifetime. But first, we have to let everyone know it’s happening…”
