RUMO 1. principal

HOW COULD I GET LIFE-READY?

Rumo was a cross-continental game in quest for well-being and personal growth. The players joined the game and found out what matters most to them, what their strengths are and put them into practice while having fun with other young people in their city and across the globe.

THE FIVE PILLARS

Rumo was about all those things we don’t learn in school. The learning process was based on the following 5 pillars:
Connection

How can I find people I can truly identify with? How can I build deeper relationships? Experience how being part of a community can be truly transforming.

Balance

How do I deal with stress and anxiety? How can I focus on what matters most to me? Learn tools that can help you deal with complex situations and decisions.

Resilience

How to keep going even when things are tough? How can I solve problems? Have real-life experiences and develop your power of learning from failure and staying strong.

Growth

Who am I? What am I good at? How can I become who I want to be? Take the time to get to know yourself, find out your uniqueness and strengthen your self-confidence. 

Purpose

What should I dedicate my life to? How can I make a difference? What is my contribution to solve the problems in the world? Explore where to steer your life and career.

The first edition of the Rumo was played between February 24th and April 10th 2020
and it was a success! Watch the video below to see what is Rumo about!

THE GAME

RUMO Oficial-49

How did it work?

Rumo was a 4-week game that was played both online and in real life. Each week players had to complete individual exercises and activities, as well as a group challenge to be solved together with their local team. During their journey, players were supported by Learning Facilitators through online cross-continental mentoring sessions, as well as local experts who joined for specific moments.

What did they get out of it?

Rumo helped the players discover and develop their life skills and make them ready to deal with difficult situations from career choices, being mentally healthy and in balance, to keeping and maintaining meaningful relationships. At the end of the game, they received a personalized certificate that showed their strength and development in crucial competences for the 21st century. All of that while having fun!

What did they commit to?

To successfully finish the game, they committed to dedicate approx. 6 hours/week during 4 weeks and to attend a 3-day local immersion with their team. They also invest a small participation fee (depending on their local partner organization), which at the end of the program the team decided to donate to a cause of their choice. Having a good internet connection and fluency in English was required.
