Hi, I’m Julio Fontes.
I developed this site and created Coletividad.
I always thought that Education was about opportunity.
The opportunity for you to become the best version of yourself by learning how to recognize the World around you. To overcome the fear(s) of the unknown(s) and to understand that you have the ability to mold it — in small and big ways.
Over the years I saw how people were trying to “fix Education” by producing more content (data/information) — not insight or wisdom.
To me, this approach of just “more content” (in old ones or new channels) is like trying to solve the mobility problem by simple building more (internal combustion engine) cars.
That totally misses the point. The issue in economic and social mobility, the opportunity of remote work an sharing economy models, of roads, metro, bikes, trains networks — the infrastructure in which all exists and is delivered.
Infrastructure is the key word. And i like
How crazy it is that we can easily make a thorough search, compare and buy more than 2000 items (sneakers/clothes/makeup), filter them by color, by fabric, by brand, by size, by objective… But when it comes to investing in us we don’t have a data-based and analytical tool even closer to that extent.
We do not have an easy answer about:
Coletividad has gone through a lot — with no investors, sponsors or partnerships.
Yet, it managed to invent, innovate, operate, produce, create, organize, manage, promote, sell, write, help almost all things and formats of the what today it aggregates in this site.
From being a Design blog in 2010… to Production of International Design and Tech Events, to creating an Offline Crowdlearning System of our own Branded Courses with hundreds of successfully done editions.
In 2014 the first, and much simpler, version of this Platform was created through a successful Crowdfunding Campaign in Brazil.
In 2017 I acquired Visitei, a pioneer Platform created in 2013 to allow — primary students — to visit companies, studios and startups see the routines of theirs desired fields and job, first hand, reducing the distance between — expectation and reality, academia, and the market.
Since them, Visits were expanded and as I envisioned, it became a practical and structured ‘learning format’. To learn directly through companies, in real-life scenarios.
Now this kind of company visits were (until Covid-19) becoming a standard element in courses and bootcamps in Brazil.
Also in 2017 I announced another great piece of the puzzle. The concept of Colearning Spaces.
Originally planned to be launched in 2018, I failed to gather the necessary resources and fulfill the timeline… Despite of that, something really amazing happened. This concept started to be adopted and reproduced around the World based on my Medium post.
By march of 2020 we won second place in the 2019 Latin American Design Award in the Branding category, in the company of big Design/Branding names, as a result of the great work of DAÓ Studio (www.estudiodao.com). You can read about our Visual Identity here.
And now, this platform.
This site is not a standalone thing.
And is far from done.
The vision is to build a complete Global Infrastructure to support all things Learn, Teach, and Create — anywhere.
This platform is a beta version — a simplified and tiny beginning of this promissing Future.
Stay in touch and be a part of it.
Thanks to ours 2014 crowdfunding backers
