Where do you see yourself in 5 years? The future is something all of us think about, whether we try to or not. It’s both incredibly fascinating and absolutely terrifying to think about what will happen. What if my dreams don’t come true? What if I’m unhappy? What if i get everything I want but it doesn’t make me happy? What if I’m wasting my life? Well, the only thing that can answer these questions is time. However, there is one thing to keep in mind. The future is yours. Nobody has any say in it except you. You are the one who gets to design your future in the way you want it to be, you decide your actions and the outcomes.
Unfortunately not everybody in the world is as lucky. There are many people on earth who have not been blessed with freedom or who have to focus on other external factors like their own survival and because of their environment, cannot live life to the fullest. It is those people that we owe some help. It is those people that need us to take Action and stand up for the issues that are plaguing this earth. But it’s not just the people that need help, it is the planet itself and all its living inhabitants. The environment is just as important, for without it we wouldn’t exist either. The United Nations summarized all of these issues very nicely with their 17 Sustainable Development Goals, which you’re familiar with, I’m sure. So how are you contributing? How are you making sure that other people have a future? What are you doing to create opportunities for people, like the ones you were blessed with?
AIESEC is organizing the YouthSpeak Forum this year, a Forum where young people have the space to exchange their ideas with professionals and take action for the issues they are passionate about. The whole event is based on the responses of the Youth Speak Survey (which you can fill out here, if you haven’t done so yet), which enlighten the participants of this event about what the people of Austria care about and what issues they feel are most important. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to inspire and be inspired, to speak up, to take action and to let your voice be heard!
