Founded in early 2009 by
Oleg Izyumenko and Sven Heijbel, Wake-Up Call aspires to be the ultimate partner for people working with youth and sustainability.
We want to catalyze the development of a new generation of empowered global youth that can take the lead in the transition to a socially, ecologically and economically sustainable society.
Our Method
We work to inspire young people to be brave enough to face the serious realities of the world around them without sinking into anxiety or denial.
To help young people stand tall and bold and dare to approach huge issues like climate change in a positive and constructive way, we empower them with skills and tools that we found working for ourselves: story telling, project management, rethinking the world and sharing positive examples.
Thus we help inspire a new generation of young leaders in many different areas: Civil Society, Business & Industry, Government & Politics, Culture & Education. We firmly believe that our generation can and will take the lead in the transition to a socially, ecologically and economically sustainable society.
Wake-Up Call brings a fresh wind of reality into your classroom or your organisation. Being quite young helps us to pick the right tone with our youth audience and create a relaxed and positive attitude while communicating the most serious global issues and challenges. Our engagement with the youth climate movement and our vast contact network help us integrate even the small-scale and local project ideas into a bigger context of the global youth in action. A visit from Wake-Up Call can give you a full theme day on climate and sustainability or be a perfect practical help for all students who want to try their wings in the real world - be it a school project, work practice or a course examination work.
Depending on a project, a specific session or an audience we can perform as:
Together with our various partners we help design, promote, and execute projects, programs and campaigns in line with our mission. Please visit the Portfolio section on our website to see who we have worked with and what we have accomplished so far.
We tell the story of a global society in change. We tell the story of the modern, international engagement that is attracting new, mainstream groups of people. We tell the success stories of young people all over the world stepping up to our common challenges. We do this as presenters, as guest speakers and as panelists.
Presenters and Workshop Facilitators
Our multimedia presentations about climate and environment, youth leadership, social entrepreneurship and our workshop "Redesign the World" are all aimed to help young people start their own initiatives, based on what they are interested in doing. We introduce planning and collaboration tools throughout the process and help youth with tips for successful project implementation.
Our presentations and workshops tour in 2009-10 gave over 3000 young people in schools and organisations plenty of new opportunities to kick-start ideas and projects for a better world.
