YDreams Global Update:
YDreams project about Cancer Awareness receives honorable mention by Fast Company
YDreams Global and Barretos Cancer Hospital have been recognized as one of Fast Company’s world changing ideas for 2019, receiving an honorable mention in the creativity category.
The winners of Fast Company’s 2019 World Changing Ideas Awards were announced earlier in April, honoring businesses, policies, projects, and concepts that offer innovative solutions to the issues facing humanity.
About Mission Genesis:
Cancer is responsible for 4 million deaths a year all over the world. About 30% to 50% of the cases can be prevented by early detection of risk factors. The Genesis Mission was created to raise awareness around the importance of prevention and self-care in other to reduce incidence and casualties from the disease.
The Genesis Mission is a journey of knowledge.
Ydreams created an immersive gamified experience that approaches a complex subject in a very unusual way, turning young students into protagonists of an imaginary and adventurous scientific investigation to save lives.
Funded by the Public Ministry of the City of Campinas, the project was conceived inside the Barreto’s Hospital, an institution regarded for its efforts to combat cancer by raising awareness and prevention.
Doctors and directors shared the same belief that the best way to act is by reaching out to young people, whose minds and hearts are open and engaged by nature.
In face of this predicament, The Barreto’s Cancer Hospital developed the” Mission Genesis” in partnership with YDreams Global.
The project was developed in over a year with the collaboration of a scientific and medical board, education professionals, engineers, editors, designers and gamers amongst others in an interdisciplinary team of more than 50 professionals.
Students from different social background and regions participated on developing the concept. Design thinking was used to orchestrate co-creation work sessions, consequently the language used, and some of the best ideas, were presented by the project’s target public themselves.
The Mission started in August 2017 and has travelled to 10 cities so far. It’s visited 20 schools, receiving 6.469 students and reached more than 25.800 people indirectly.
About the World Changing Ideas Awards: World Changing Ideas is one of Fast Company’s major annual awards programs and is focused on social benefit, seeking to elevate finished products and brave concepts that make the world better. A panel of judges from across sectors choose winners, finalists, and honorable mentions based on feasibility and the potential for impact. With a goal of awarding ingenuity and fostering innovation, Fast Company draws attention to ideas with great potential and helps them expand their reach to inspire more people to start working on solving the problems that affect us all.
