The Challenge

Our society reflects a crisis in the management of emotional intelligence. There is a worldwide trend in which children are increasingly undergoing emotional conflicts, loneliness, depression, aggression, among others.

As a society, we must be concerned and deal with this situation that affects both children and adults, in order to achieve a development of the emotional intelligence of each individual. This type of Intelligence refers to the ability to identify, understand and manage emotions in oneself and in others.

Psychologists state that part of the solution lies in the way we prepare our young people for life. Therefore, in this challenge it will be fundamental that both the school and the community generate diverse strategies to face this reality and provide individuals with tools. It will be important in this process to inculcate essentially human skills such as self-awareness, self-control, empathy, and resilience.

During the challenge, technology can be your ally to generate strategies that address the issue and reach out to the whole community.

People around the world will value the impact of the education of emotions on individuals and will understand the importance of being able to generate strategies to comprehend ourselves as a community and to be happier.
We invite you to commit to the future.
