Global Learning Opportunities Building Engagement (GLOBE) project integrating United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals with TED Talks related to Leadership and Social Responsibility. Students select TED videos and produce an individual report about speaker contributions to one or more SDGs. Teams select a video to produce a TEDxFSCJ Learning Adventures’ presentation. Students select the best videos to create a TED Ed Lesson for online discussions. This GLOBE project idea can be used for future courses including new TED Talks and different SDGs.
This is our third years where our BAS in Supervision and Management students are using TED, TEDx, and TED Ed lessons to produce a TEDxFSCJ event.

Here is another example about the importance of accurate data. When I was the world’s youngest manager of a nuclear research reactor we had a old control room with paper displays that generated graphics based on data received from sensors located at the bottom of the reactor core. Every year we had to remove the fuel from the reactor pool, store them in a safe pool, remove water of reactor pool, and plan to go down properly protected to replace the sensors,. We practice in a simulation room to replaced them in less than two minutes. The day of the real change, we went according to radioactive protocol depending of amount of radioactive exposure we had before. I had to go to set the example. It was important to receive accurate data that was going to be registered in an old control room . Here are some pictures of those days. Please share a similar case in your industry or workplace.
As a leaders of this globe, we have rights and obligations. We have duties as citizens to educate our next generation of leaders and to manage our resources. It is important to talk about value-based leadership, team-based leadership, and use-of-natural-resources leadership. Value-based leaders have embedded their value system and use it all the time.
We have been growing in a society that has many differences, divisions, and hate. Now we have to narrow our needs to have a better future and a better world. We have to enjoy our days and teach others how to be better to improve our world. Here we share a method and ideas to improve the Global Youth Leadership Skills for the Next Generation:
1. Have an Honor Code
When we talk about value-based leadership it is important to have an honor code, a set of specific statements that are going to be the foundation of who you are. Who is the kind of person you want to show to others. What are the values that you have in the base of your pyramid. Examples, Pledge of Allegiance, Scout Oath, Code of Conduct.
2. Add a set of standards as Law
You have to list and organize a set of fundamental parameters as life standards or commitments. Examples, Constitution, Commandments, Scout Law.They are a set of rules to lead or live better.
3. Teamwork activities
Our youth needs to learn to be in a team. Sometimes you are a follower, sometimes you are the leader, but sometimes you are the person who puts the pieces together, coordinator, communicator, organizer, thinker, or caller to action.
4. Continuous Progression
It is also important to have a continuous progression and assess the process to make adjustments to personal advancement. Use self-evaluation or feedback evaluation from others to be in the right track.
5. Be a Global Youth Leader
We are part of a global community. We are not only in own specific city or country. We think and act locally but we also should think and act globally. We belong to one world. “E Pluribus Unum”, out of many one. We belong to a society that are part of other groups. We have to respect the differences in religious, races, national origin and languages in order to be able to bring everybody to the mix. We are not a melting pot, we are a “big salad” where flavors and colors are added to be mix and then we can enjoy the benefits of being a global citizen.
6. Youth Leadership Challenge
Leadership is a process that involve everything you do in life. It is embedded in your blood. Be a role model to others. For these reasons, I challenge you to teach leadership skills to the next generation. Involve children into youth leadership courses and youth groups. They will learn how to lead our world with a better foundation . Get children involved in youth leadership training, teamwork based training, and value based leadership training.
If we want codes, laws, rules, or rights to be applied in our world,we have to teach the next generation to read and apply them in their local communities. Then we have to teach them to think and act locally and think and act globally to build a better world.
Be a global learner. Be a global leader. Be a global citizen.
What if you were told not to follow your passion, rather to bring it alongside with you? Countless motivational speakers, successful people and even our parents tell us to follow our passion. Could they all be wrong? Today’s Daily Dose shared by PragerU and narrated by Mike Rowe of Dirty Jobs explains how not following your passion can lead to finding it in the end.
Mike shares a story with us about missed opportunity, explaining how our happiness does not always depend of the type of job we perform. He shares a story of a septic tank entrepreneur who became financially successful and did so because the market was untapped, not because it was his passion! So, Mike continues to tell us that many awesome opportunities are available to us while we are still discovering and nurturing our passion. Don’t pass…
