People have a really one-sided view of what's happening in the world. That breeds polarization. Plus, when they want to do something, they feel hopeless. They think, “I can't.

It's not my generation that will change the world, but you! We need to start sharing ideas and collaborate beyond our immediate networks of people to achieve goals together.
For the last 5 years, impactmania has featured change makers in more than 30 countries.
