Oasis Training London Newham We hereby invite you to the Oasis Training, a unique community action program from Instituto Elos Brasil that we apply worldwide in communities. The Oasis Game is a technology developed by Instituto Elos Brasil that aims to realize the dream of a community by bringing them together to co-dream, codesign and co-create that dream with their own hands and hearts. The process involves a lot of interactive playful tools to make it attractive for everybody to join hands in creating a better world together, starting in their own community, starting now. th

From August 28 to September 2 the Oasis Training group will do the first Oasis Game ever played in the UK. It will take place in the community of Newham in London. This 6 day event is supported by LUSH cosmetics and is aimed at playing the game, but also training participants in the art of the Elos Methodology and Philosophy, that are behind the Oasis Game. And you can take part! During this 6 day intensive training you’ll first hand experience the power of this participative approach towards community action by doing it. We will engage with the community of Newham to find the most collective dream, design it together and get them to get their hands dirty realizing this dream together with the Oasis players. As a participant you’ll receive the experience, the tools and build the capacity to start to do your own oasis afterwards. The game and training will be hosted by facilitators from Brazil, Holland and Spain. This opportunity is made possible and supported by LUSH cosmetics and is open for 15 participants who want to create bottom-up change by using the power of play! For this Oasis Game we accept the additional challenge to do it in a way that respects the environment as much as possible. We’ll try to reduce, re-use, re-cycle and upcycle in the most creative ways to make this Oasis the most conscious Oasis Game played so far. Join this challenge and play with us!
