Creating a fairer world for future generations
10 December 2022 – International Day of Human Rights
For the occasion of International Day of Human Rights, Faces of Change foundation and ImpactLeaders international organized an event in Utrecht, The Netherlands. The keynote speaker was Jessica Lockhart, CEO and Founder of the International Institute of Humanology. The title of her presentation was ‘I have a dream too’.
Jessica Lockhart took us on a journey to understand her dream of a fair and peaceful world. She is convinced her dream can be realised, because; peace starts with us, so we can do it. But how can we become peacebuilders? The 'narrative of war' is so mainstream, and we have learned to believe it is justifiable to use violence to resolve a conflict. It all starts with our beliefs.

Working with Partners on new program
10 March 2023
Empowering Youth at the fringes of Europe
In the first quarter of the year, we have been working with three partners to develop a program on empowering youth that live in border area's. The good thing was that one of our partners had found a way to co-fund the idea we had in 2022 through he EU's Erasmus+ program. This gave a us a clear deadline to work on for 22 March 2023.
Erasmus+ proposal: FRINGE-ACT
And Yes! we submitted our plan in time, and we think we found a tantalizing acronym 'FRINGE-ACT' for our project that symbolises the core of our idea; acting with our empowerment and entrepreneurship program in border regions. Through interaction with organisations that operate in border area's we realised that our program has real value to offer in specifically that context. Together with Changemakers4all from North-Macedonia, Market Leader from Turkey and Stichting International Youth Bridges we gave further shape to the initial idea to use our Impactleaders program to strengthen youth organisations in border regions, so that more young people can be empowered to become Impactleaders and Peacebuilders, finding their purpose in life through initiatives that serve humanity and peace.
With such great volunteer driven partner organisations we're bound to reach great impact for the future generation ... READ FURTHER >>
