Our current connections work towards a concentration of wealth and opportunity for the few, a confirmation of our biases, more time with people like us.

This has lead to an unfair world.

To create a fairer world we need different connections, between races, ages, wealth, nations.

Unlikely Connections for a Fairer World

Welcome to AIME

Unlikely Connections for a Fairer World

Unlocking the imagination of the human race to forge unlikely connections that lead to a different set of outcomes, a different world, a fairer world.

Unlikely Connections…

With stories

That introduce heroes we haven’t seen, to shift our biases, and to see the potential we all have

With knowledge

For freedom of the mind

With mentors

For a two-way exchange

To a network

A new home for exchange of opportunities, wealth, ideas – where those outside the margins now have a stage to confirm that it’s not just what you know, but who you (don’t) know.

“One unlikely connection, to someone on the different side of the tracks, can change the course of a students life, of a CEO’s decisions, a schools future, a town, a nation, the world. One unlikely connection by one we’ll get it done.”

Testimonials

“Imagine the freedom to create new realities. To see challenges as opportunities for growth and create moments of connection, mentoring and imagination along the way”

Rhian Miller

Ex-mentee/Program Lead

Australia

“I want to see my mob (the human race) live with culture and I want to see myself as part of continuing that culture that connects me to every human through love and passing on of knowledge as our ancestors did. I see myself as a continuation of those giants, those warriors of resilience and that wisdom.
I want to see us embracing Mother Nature and working with nature as our ancestors did for us to be here today as their extension.”

Shyaka Lwanyaaga Farid

Lead Mentor Program

Africa

“To me, AIME is a movement that includes everyone. We get to transcend divides across races, cultures, geographies, social classes, ages, and see ourselves as an interdependent part of the whole of humanity sharing one massive-little miraculous spinning orb in the vast cosmos. It is a place for us to see the goodness in all and work with optimism to build a fairer world / a place for the dreamers, doers, designers,  visionaries, imagineers, change-organisers and all of us who want equity and balance for the whole planet.  It is the next generation rising up, and the ones who’ve come before. It is the home for youngsters who are forced outside the margins, and a jumping board for those within. For we know there is fertile ground on the margins – check out AIME I AM if you’ve got any doubts.”

Australia

“As a Co-CEO I am presented with the opportunity to fast track my executive-level leadership skills. It is AIME’s play at making boardrooms more diverse, fair and provide young people with the ability to take the stage – to shake up the stiff environment that can negatively affect those spaces.
For me, it’s the chance to show the young Australian mob that hurdles are made to be jumped, that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander leadership doesn’t just exist only on the sporting fields but in board rooms, global platforms and in your very own community.”

Drew Paten

Co-CEO

Australia

“My work at AIME involves the future generation of tomorrow, they can do better than us, so let’s work together and make this happen. AIME is an idea from a continent far from where I was born but it is making a significant change in this country. Let’s not give up on tomorrow’s future.”

“I’ve always been inspired by the work of AIME and I will never forget, having the opportunity to be a part of an original idea that is jujutsu kicking its way into the world to lift up some many people is something I want to work towards, contribute to and talk about until we explore all the options available because I don’t want to live in a world that has no imagination and I don’t want my children or any young person to think about solving these issues on their own – We’re better together, all of us.”

“Now, where I come from – the world of pure imagination, that is – we know only too well how interconnected the web of life is: from the mycelium underneath to the starry sky above, and everything in between. Like members of the human race (I don’t like how it excludes non-human beings, but it’s still broader than limiting myself to a nation hey?); or better, children of the Universe!”
