Time for change.
Students from all over Europe are claiming their future. Students from six partnering countries all have aspirations, dreams and ideas about their own future. Claim Your Future
During this process, a couple of amazing things happen;
By letting the student decide what they want to focus on, they are being put in the drivers seat of their own future. We call this: ‘Students In The Lead’.
Claim Your Future puts students in the lead based on four simple key actions; discover, create, lead and share.
Each student works within a region that has its own varying topics of interest. It is up to the student to discover the various topics of the region or to come up with their own topics. Maybe the students wants to work on a social issue, bring more awareness to a certain subject, or improve one of the strong points of the region. The students explores the region through company visits, round table talks with government officials and meetings with other students, entrepreneurs or other professionals.
A practical approach to regional topics
Once the student has chosen their topic of interest, they come up with innovative plans or solutions to that topic. they do this by meeting with experts, organizing theme days, having think tanks or thinking of other creative ways to spark their ingenuity.
Be an ambassador for your ideas
Of course, these plans are meant to be spread. After working on their idea, the student becomes an ambassador for their own ideas and plans. The studentlead other students by sharing and talking about their plans for the future. This enthuses other students and officials and creates awareness around that topic.
Sharing ideas with peers, professionals and government
The final step in this cycle is to share the plans with peers, professionals, policy- and decision makers, other government officials, entrepreneurs and others who are interested. Sharing can be done in several ways; through workshops, think tanks, round table meetings, organizing themed days or other ways the student sees fit. By meeting with these people, the student discovers new ideas and the cycle of discover, create, lead and share starts all over again.
