FUTURE INSPIRED! wants to inspire our audience so that they can turn little ideas in their minds into great and marvellous inventions for the world to enjoy. This will be done by promoting inspirational initiatives and inventions by young people both in and out of education, across many fields. It is proven that youths are good creators and risk takers because we have very little to lose and mostly more energetic. As a result, we are more daring and entrepreneurial. By bringing together these inspirational news, we can all motivate ourselves to start something good today.
