Young people from all over Brazil and from the world are being summoned to join a game to fight coronavirus, without leaving home. The game mobilizes young people between the ages of 12 and 25 to create and apply solutions to several impact fronts of the pandemic as helping risk groups, fighting fake news, thinking about solutions to the economy, the lack of water, the population’s emotional health and creating challenges according to their reality.
Operation Antivirus X is based on X-Journey, whose framework proposes a collaborative game, totally safe, fast, free and fun. The idea came from a provocation by Edgar Barki, from the Entrepreneurship Center of the Getúlio Vargas Foundation, to Edgar Gouveia Júnior, co-founder of LiveLab, who has already applied the format to other games as Primavera X, whose objective was to protect Brazilian water sources.
“People have never been connected and distant at the same time. This generation has been being prepared to use its superpowers at this decisive moment. The time has come for this youth, who was born in a digital world, to gather their friends and technological wit to present creative solutions in the fight against COVID-19.”
Edgard Gouveia Júnior - Livelab Founder and Pedagogical Coordination.
