Our future in the hands of young people
It is fantastic to experience and recognise the creativity, innovative power, enthousiasm, dedication and passion of all the participants from so many countries during the national (Dutch) and international olympiade on sustainability organised by INESPO over the last 7 years. All these participants are willing to help their society for and towards a better, healthy and sustainable world. In 2015 we welcomed 45 countries and 300 participants.
In my believe it is important to understand that we need these young people for our future. Business leaders and governements are underestimating the creativeness and innovative power of these young people. We must support and stimulate these young people to strengthen their talents for our future.
It is also a great opportunity for students participating during the Olympiade to develop their own (international) skills. I hope to welcome and meet many of them in our next Olympiade.
