Problem

According to a World Bank report, in Brazil, half of the young people aged 15-29 (25 million people) are currently economically disengaged (lacking or hardly acquiring human capital), in a world that evolves with new technologies. We will bring our methodology and courses to teachers, social educators and youth, strengthening competencies, stimulating the use of technologies in an ethical, transformative way, heightening global awareness, social and civic entrepreneurship.

Solution

The project - Recode - Reprogramming and Digitally Empowering Brazil: A 2-year introductory vision for an important step in the systemic change of access and use of technologies for social transformation - seeks to transform the future of young people in social vulnerability in Brazilian communities and public schools, driven by the use of technologies. It aims to generate systemic change in the teaching and learning processes of individuals, for the ethical and citizen use of new technologies, whilst promoting actions that contribute to the strengthening of human capital with the skills necessary to thrive in this new moment of society, of the 4th Industrial and Technological Revolution. According to the OECD, around 65% of school-age children are likely to work in professions that do not yet exist and 35% of the most in demand skills will change in less than 24 months. Recode/CDI Global wants to implement a huge revolution in education and impact a whole generation of Brazilians, transforming existing educational spaces, such as schools, community centers and libraries, into digital empowerment centers. We will bring our methodology and courses to teachers, social educators and young people, strengthening competencies such as leadership, entrepreneurial sense, digital and analytical skills, and creativity, stimulating the use of technologies in an ethical, transformative way, heightening global awareness, social and civic entrepreneurship.

Competitive Advantage

Recode/CDI Global has developed a methodology in which each individual recognizes his or her own potential to identify challenges and develop creative solutions to social problems. Using digital solutions and collaborative processes, the participants find opportunity and appropriate tools for decision-making. The content also develops some of the key socioemotional skills of the 21st century among young people, such as problem solving, collaboration, creativity and communication. Its approach looks at three dimensions: The Self, which promotes a reflection of the youth as an active actor; We, concerning interactions and relationships, such as learning environments and All of Us, which focus on the young person as an active citizen in the world. During the training, youth go through four important developmental steps: * Motivation to Read the World * Understanding to Act * Planning for Impact * Experimenting to Evaluate

Planned Goals and Milestones

In Brazil, our vision for the next 10 years is to take our courses to young people from all over the country, contributing to the development of an entire generation, impacting 1 million young Brazilians, and expanding our presence and methodology to 100,000 digital empowerment centers, in public schools, community centers and libraries. As far as our global activities, Recode/CDI Global plans to expand its activities to Africa and Asia in the coming years. All these efforts will require major investments in staff and infrastructure.
