Introduction (I
-
III)


I) Introduction:


IDEAS For Us welcomes the students &

Youth leaders and introduces the concept of
IDEAS. We provide background information about the creation of IDEAS, its
development process and model, as well as current activities and future prospects. We
discuss the challenges facing us all with a beautif
ul multimedia performance and
activities that involve the crowd.


II) The Great Transition Icebreaker:


Becoming an affiliate or chapter of IDEAS is a wonderful undertaking that will help
students grow as leaders on their campuses and in their communitie
s. IDEAS is all
about identifying problems in the community and seeing them as opportunities for
solutions. It is often necessary to hold a first event and get everyone on the same page.
Very often IDEAS Chapters begin with one or two students or even a fa
culty member
taking the initiative to start a group on campus. Because of such small numbers at the
get go, it is a critical part of chapter growth to attract other students to the club, and
share the concept and the culture of empowerment that IDEAS For U
s fosters. The best
way you can achieve this is to hold a campus wide call for students interested in joining
an “action based” club on campus. Students and faculty can gather in a meeting place
and the Chapter leader (most likely the POC) can then use our

“Great Transition
Icebreaker” to set the tone that this is a different type of club that wants students to think
differently. We will hold this activity and provide a toolkit for implementing these
activities in the future.


III) Q&A:


IDEAS for Us stri
ves to Educate, Engage and empower others through our initiatives.
We have a large menu of activities but we prefer to ask each chapter or affiliate what
kind of changes they are interested in making for themselves. It can be helpful to open
the meeting wi
th three (3) questions that strike at the core of what we need to consider
before moving forward. These questions can be answered by a show of hands or other
means based on the best judgment of the meeting host. However, we have found that it
is best to us










The Five Pillars Multimedia Showcase (IV)


IV) The Five Pillars of Sustainability:



This session will include an in
-
depth exploration of Energy, Water, Food, Waste and
Ecology which are

central to understanding the world we live in. These five topics
elements in our day. We will provide an exciting and engaging educational performance.
Each of the Five
Pillars of Sustainability encompasses a lot of information. A discussion
about food for instance is certainly not just about food. It’s about the plants, pigs,
chickens, tuna and salami. It’s about nutrition and choosing the right foods that help
local Ame
rican farmers while keeping down food shipping costs. It’s about stories that
depict where our food comes from and how everything from corn, potatoes and
tomatoes have a country of origin, once upon a time. Each topic, be it Energy, Water,
Food, Waste or E
cology, all have an amazing story behind them. We break ground by
telling the truth.


Developing Solutions (V)


(V) Solutions:


IDEAS is an action oriented organization that strives to implement actual solutions
through action projects to solve local and

global environmental problems. Over our
nearly 5 year history IDEAS has implemented over 50 different projects or campaigns
successfully from energy conservation programs to ecosystem cleanups. We want to
share with you in detail some of our best solution
s to raise awareness about what is
possible for a motivated group to accomplish. This will also help to inspire the
conference members for designing their own action project in the following sessions.


The Hive (VI
-

VII)


VI) The Hive: Speakeasy for Innovation:


The Hive is an interdisciplinary, multi
-
generational “Think/Do Tank” that exists in
communities for the purpose of organizing stakeholders for action projects. The Hive
operates as a standalone group that seeks to
draw in members of both IDEAS Chapters
at the local level and members of the general community. In name, the Hive represents
a beehive and the bees are the attendees of the event. Each month, the “bees” gather
at the Hive and formulate an action plan to ad
dress a Global Problem with a Local
Solution. Everyone disperses afterwards until the next action project or planning
meeting to work on the task at hand. The Primary Goal of The Hive: Speakeasy for
Innovation, is to accomplish action projects in a communi
ty through a crowd sourced,
interdisciplinary, intergenerational Think/Do tank.




VII) Innovations Think Thank
:


For the purposes of the IYC Conference we will adapt The Hive concept in a multi
-
hour
session that culminates in an Innovations Think Tank.

We will invite other community
stakeholders such as government officials or businesses owners, that won’t be present
for the other parts of the conference, to join us for this particular section where the
students can interact, collaborate, and exchange i
deas with the professional community,
demonstrate their learned knowledge from the previous conference sessions, and have
everyone collaboratively develop a proposal which outlines a real action project that
they will commit to once the conference has ende
d. This means real world results
through action projects, through a sustainable framework, directly from the conference.


(VIII) The Triple Bottom Line


VIII) Establishing a New Benchmark for TBL:


The Triple bottom line is a concept that looks at econo
mic, social and environmental
aspects of business as equal components of one another. We will discuss how this
innovation.


X) The Final Message:

IDEAS For Us wants the youth aro
und the world to succeed in whatever they pursue.
Our final message is aimed at bringing everything full circle and incorporates a great
take home message to continue to expire for a long time to come.
