The Youth Future Project is a non-profit organization founded in 2009 by six students with the aim of bringing together young people with laureates of the Right Livelihood Award, the Alternative Nobel Prize, in order to enable a dialogue and encounter between great role models of our time and the young generation of the future. The first event that the Youth Future Project organized was an international youth conference with the title: “Changing Course to the Future!” In September 2010, a group of 120 young people from 16 countries came together in Bonn with 30 Alternative Nobel laureates and formulated a manifesto for the future. The Youth Future Manifesto was presented at the United Nations Millennium Goals Summit by our UN-youth delegate only weeks later. Since then, the Youth Future Project encompasses a number of different initiatives – on a local and international level – all pursuing one common goal: societal change for peace, justice, environmental
protection and sustainable development in business, politics, and civil society. The young people of the Youth Future Project recognize their responsibility for our future as well as the planet’s and see themselves as ambassadors of Right Livelihood – life and action for the benefit of humankind and nature.
