1. A unique curated and self-organized trip.

Our learning Journey will offer the opportunity to co-create the tour plan within the whole group of participants, facilitators and hosts. We will decide together based on common interests and following a flow of emergent meetings and discoveries. You will be able to choose the places more connected to your interests:

a) Museum of Tomorrow.

b) Casa Amarelo.

c) Teatro Container Mungunzá.

2. Meaningful connection with the indigenous communities. 

During our journey, we will connect with traditional communities in the region between Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo. We will listen. We will ask for forgiveness and will share our intention to help to regenerate Mother Nature. We would like to understand how we build up lasting relationships and share our future in harmony:

a) Guaranis were nomads and a warrior nation that suffered since the colonization. They are seen as a very spiritual nation using tobacco and corn as medicine to connect with their ancestor.

b) Quilombolas are ancestors of former slaves that were freed or escaped and formed a community. Their cultural and traditional life is rich and quimbolas are known for their happiness.

c) Caicaras are fishermen that are still using traditional methods and tools in order to live in harmony with nature. The Caicaras community of Trinidade has a long history of resistance and showed strong community sense when they were threatened to lose their home to a wealthy property company.

3. Let´s rethink Education.

Brazil has amazing and innovative solutions in early childhood education. Through lack of resources, a culturally rich country and strong bonding to family and communities you find some of the most impressive education solutions for schools and kindergartens in these regions. Communities naturally re-defined education based on their needs.

a) Coletivo Neos www.coletivoneos.orgwas born as a group that united for manifesting a  collective dream, co-creating a plural space for transdisciplinary human development and the integration of natural knowledge in the contemporary world.

And More: Escola Gente, Amorim Lima, FabLab at CEE Heliópolis, Quintal MágicoJardim Beija-Flor.

Therefore, since 1996, they keep a companionship environment where everyone, children, teenagers and adults, can create and manage their own projects.
