Motivation: Thinking of the future of humanity and the earth, regarding current developments and trends, you will soon find out that immense changes have to take place. We need to rethink our lifestyle to enable our grandchildren to live in a healthy and peaceful world. Wars, nuclear proliferation, extinction of species and cultures, natural disasters, man-made global warming, climate change, poverty, and hunger… Confronted with these problems, most of our fellow citizens resign or question the possibility of making a difference. This attitude and many misconceptions will not achieve the change that we so desperately need. The manifold projects of RLA laureates show that one can be effective in making a difference. The laureates are inspiring examples of the fact that even a single person can change the world for good. Sadly, in my opinion, most people have the wrong ideals. Young people are trendsetters and citizens of the planet’s future. My ambition is to open their eyes and ears for the global issues and solutions, and to connect them to inspiring activists, setting an example for the promises of tomorrow.
