I’m an architect, a co-founder and the executive director of Instituto Elos, a nonprofit organization based in Santos, Brasil that is dedicated to train and stimulate individuals and communities for collective and cooperative action oriented by purpose “to propel the movement to make happen now the world we all dream off”.
At Elos I’ve co-created the Warriors Without Weapons program (Guerreiros Sem Armas) and the Oasis Game being also one of the facilitators of these programs. Besides that I’ve been working internationally as a consultant and speaker on social change, entrepreneurship for change, participative leadership, community mobilization and community building in multicultural contexts.
Over the last 18 years I’ve been focused on design and facilitating methods and process for collective learning and action or what we call learning by doing experiences for personal and social transformation. I’ve been doing this working both with social, private and public sectors in Brasil and abroad in countries like Bolivia, Canada, Curaçao, England, Netherlands and Spain.
