Free yourself from old beliefs…

…to move to a better future. The new generation believes very different things than their parents did about the world. Learn about new paradigms and perspectives — about yourself, about adults, about kids, about society

Listen to youth…

…because they have much to say that we don’t hear. They will shape their future world in new ways.Much of the source of Marc’s ideas is his deep contacts with youth. We may think we listen to them — but THEY think we don’t.
Marc is especially good at is talking with young people, and eliciting their hidden ideas. One of Marc’s central observations is how badly we (mostly unconsciously) treat our young people — we disrespect them, under-appreciate them and truly under-estimate what they can.do.
 

 

 

See the exact same things — but in very new ways

People can see often see things – and people – looking the same on the surface, without realizing how much they hace changed underneath.
The prime example is our children and students. If we look at them differently, we will do different things.
