With our movement we overcome social and environmental challenges locally and globally by working collectively towards the world we dream of. The main strategy of Elos has been to host programs in Brazilian communities that are a profound learning experience for participants to take to their own work, life and community. In Brazil and around the world.
The movement consists of two main groups; Each Guerreiros Sem Armas program 60 young leaders from all over the world are invited to participate in a 32 day immerssion working in 3 Brazilian communities. In 9 editions of this deep transformational learning program 452 participated from 42 countries. The movement of warriors has brought the Elos philosophy to many communities, schools and organizations.
Many more people have participated in an Oasis Game or Oasis Training. In 2009, the 7 steps of the Elos Philosophy were gamified in a free, downloadable version of a process where a group of participants go through a playful process (Game) to realize the common dream of a community (Oasis). Over 1,000 people have participated in the 8 day Oasis training and have afterwards realized countless smaller and bigger actions.
As of early 2016 we have registered that since Elos' existence over 300 community actions have taken place, reaching over 25.000 people worldwide. The Elos Foundation is focussed on giving opportunities for the initial impulse given by Instituto Elos to this movement to continue to flourish and change the world.
