Imagine you have a chance to experience different worlds in just 90 minutes. 

Under the spell of immersive theatre rules, participants gathered in small groups will travel through different online rooms showing alternative future realities -some Utopian, some Dystopian-  about how we will learn and work in the future. 

In some rooms, they will be welcomed by a host  -who happens to be a young social innovator – that will share a life lesson from working in places where everything is more difficult and yet the future is in the making. In others, they will have to immerse in the story in order to solve a challenge collaboratively. Finally, all participants will gather in a final chance to debate and share lessons learned. 

By engaging in this experience, participants will get the chance to interact with others meaningfully, avoiding awkward small talk, learning something new and getting a chance to meet some of the young changemakers transforming the world right now.
