Rally Currambero

In the framework of the first call for Youth Initiatives of the "Nuestra Barranquilla" program, led by Fundación Corona, Diseño Público, and Fundación Botnar, the "Rally Currambero" emerged: a City Ambassador Training Program aimed at the youth of Barranquilla. Through a series of academic and experiential sessions, the program allowed participants to strengthen their sense of belonging through cross-cutting themes such as the Right to the City, transformation and preservation of heritage, biodivercity, culture, communication skills, introduction to mobile device-based video production and editing.

The experiential journey led them to rediscover their city through a tour of the 5 districts of Barranquilla, where 9 teams interacted at 9 stations, engaging in various activities and challenges. These activities allowed them to earn badges that validated key values or characteristics of the city's identity. As the final challenge, each team developed a one-minute film highlighting a specific theme associated with the challenges and opportunities of Barranquilla.
