I’m sure you have experienced before that feeling of desire and enthusiasm to do something you really want to do. Well, that’s the feeling I have right now. Although this is not the first time I talk to you about WOP, this time I do it with even more enthusiasm, due to the news that it entails. Let me explain. (more…)
I am back. This summer has been a very special and peculiar one. It allowed me to rest a little, read a little, observe a lot and make new friends, that kind of friends that leave their mark. The same one that the fact of saving plastic bottle caps a few years ago, more than a decade at least, left me. That’s why today’s post has to do with caps, but also with creativity, innovation, youth, circular economy, environment and the desire to change for the better.
Are you ready for it? Go ahead.
As summer is approaching, today I bring you an initiative that I found very interesting. It is a way to move from an entrepreneur to an innovative and solidary action.
It’s called BREAKING THE WALL, a solidarity escape room created in collaboration between ALBOAN and Cocolisto. ALBOAN is the NGO of international cooperation of the Jesuits in Euskadi and Navarra, and Cocolisto is a team of people specialized in using the game, also as a training element.
It is presented as a global emergency campaign COVID-19 whose aim is to raise funds to alleviate the effects of the pandemic among vulnerable communities in countries in Latin America, Africa or India with fragile or non-existent health systems.
BREAKING THE WALL is designed as an interactive collaborative game that proposes a series of enigmas to collapse and dismantle the famous fakes news, as well as prejudices, fears and false rumours about migrants and refugees.
There is no age limit and the game is designed so that up to 4 people can participate from different places. All you need is the desire to have a good time, to contribute to a great cause and a minimum of 12 euros.
Now that there are so many birthdays to celebrate, how about making an original gift? I’ve already done it, and you, what are you waiting for? Just go to http://breakingthewall.alboan.org/ and follow the very simple instructions. You will receive a code and everything will be ready to play. You will have 60 minutes to solve the puzzle. Will you be able to?
Ready, steady, go!
On Wednesday the 3rd of June, the second session of the live interviews cycle of Inspira STEAM at home took place, whose aim is to give visibility to female scientists and technologists. I have already talked to you about Inspira STEAM before, but not about today’s protagonist. She is an 18-year-old researcher, inventor, and entrepreneur, who is currently studying her second year of Medicine.
Do you want to know a bit more about this woman? Keep reading. (more…)
Today’s post is still related to COVID-19, simply because we can’t forget about it, at least for now. It’s true that the changes it created makes us not forget it, but let me remind you that most of us are privileged. We came to this situation in much better conditions than millions of people, some we know and some we don’t. So, please, let’s be positive.
In my case, I am thankful for having a place that allows me to move freely, technology resources that allow me and my family to work without having to “fight” for them, and, specially, because I have four people who I can talk to any time. That is a privilege.
So, today, the reflection and initiative I present you are related to this unexpected new “friend” that I personally would have liked not to meet. Oh, and in that way, I am still with the treasure hunt: the coronavirus game. (more…)
