The impact of technologies in our society has begun to transform the way we work; we all have to change our approach to things. New skills and new abilities will be needed, but we already need them now. Creativity is becoming increasingly important among soft skills. With this project, we aim to create awareness on the benefits of awareness and communication to develop creativity. Awareness, communication, and creativity as tools of daily life. "Realizing that you were able to invent something; to create with enough truth to be happy to read what you had created, and to do it every day you worked, was something that brought more joy than I had ever known. "Other than that, nothing mattered." wrote Ernest Hemingway. The main objective of the project is to ensure that children are able to open up and share their skills, discovering the different elements that make up the individual personality to analyze them without judgment, focusing on feelings and how their body reacts. Another fundamental objective of the project is to develop the creative side of the participants. We want to explore everyone's abilities so that each boy is able to explore it and feel comfortable. Creativity will help the kids to discover many positive sides of their personality, developing the creative side will help to explore the self, connect with oneself to know themselves better and be ready to face life The activities to be carried out during the 7 days of exchange include the use of non-formal didactic methodologies. In this sense, We will use Games as an icebreaker, we will carry out workshops to deepen the young's work on the issues of the project by expanding the knowledge they began to learn during the meetings of preparation.
