Mother Mary Angelica, Who Founded Catholic TV Network, Dies at 92 | Entreprenuership | Scoop.it
She was a popular and influential host on the Eternal Word Television Network, where she criticized liberalizing trends in the Catholic Church.
Michael Plishka's insight:
Agree or disagree with her, she started a cable network in 1981 with $200, a garage studio, and her on-air persona, and it grew to reaching 100 million homes worldwide. Estimates it pulled in 25 million in donations only 15 years after starting. She was a lesson in entrepreneurial fortitude and faith.

Youth Engagement is the #1 Success Factor in Designing Sustainable Futures

Youth Engagement is the #1 Success Factor in Designing Sustainable Futures | Entreprenuership | Scoop.it
Although young people have historically been drivers and catalysts for important institutional changes and continue to be so in the modern era, their influence in daily decisions affecting their lives has been more often nonexistent. Their leadership is rarely recognized by a public that sees them as being beneficiaries of government programs and interventions, rather than as agents of change. Simultaneously, the media casts children and youth as apathetic, entitled, and disruptive, while ignoring the fact that disruption has historically been a prerequisite for liberation from oppressive regimes.

The United States had Susan B. Anthony, who collected anti-slavery votes at the age of 17, and Dorothy Day, who was imprisoned at the age of 20 for women's suffrage. Later in the 20th century, we see a young Claudette Colvin who, at the age of 15, was arrested for refusing to give her seat in a Montgomery bus just nine months before Rosa Parks. In more recent years, courageous young Americans championed LGBTQ and immigration reforms; meanwhile, other youth around the world has risen to up challenge the status quo, from the Arab spring to elections in Cambodia, and to the global Occupy movement protesting the grotesque wealth inequality. It is because of the power young people weld in creating change that this session sought to address challenges and opportunities of participatory urban governance, in order to help amplify and extend the impacts of young people around the world.

David Cooperrider & Christopher Johnston's curator insight, November 5, 2015 8:19 AM

This article demonstrates and illustrates why youth engagement may be the core success factor in building a sustainability+ flourishing future. All of our experience in applying the "whole systems in the room" Appreciative Inquiry Summit also confirms it: young leadership in the mix changes, by large magnitudes, the positive potential in any change effort.

 

While many government authorities around the world have been slow in integrating youth in their decision-making processes, the United Nations has taken a more proactive role, with a leading example being the Youth 21 initiative launched by UN-Habitat addressing the need for permanent mechanisms for youth participation in the UN system. This year, the newly established Office of the UN Secretary General´s Special Envoy on Youth will soon launch the UN-Youth Global Development Gateway, a "pioneering digital interactive platform to mobilize young people globally for SDG [sustainable development goals] implementation".

 

Additionally, nearly 93,000 young people from around the world voted in the recent election for the new UN-Habitat Youth Advisory Board. These examples and so many others highlighting the UN's leadership, innovation, and achievements in sustainable development have been largely ignored or remain unseen by the public due to high-profile international conflict resolution headlines.

 

But part of the good news is this: we are learning that any global change effort, if it is to be successful, must be intergenerational and include the full engagement of our next generation leaders. The new website www.aim2flourish.com is an wonderful example.
