Cultura Inglesa Valqueire Cardboard Challenge

Rio de Janeiro, Southeast


The Agents of Change project, at Cultura Inglesa Idiomas S/A, encourages young learners to take on the role of detectives of life and Makers. In a student-led investigation, learners observe, identify and analyze real-life challenges in their communities. Throughout this autonomous process, students are invited to, collaboratively, do research on their themes of choice, conduct surveys, share their ideas and present their own solutions to challenges. The whole project is conducted in English, which is taught as a foreign language.

Inviting The World To Play

The Global Cardboard Challenge began in 2012, following the overwhelming success of the short film, 'Caine's Arcade'. In 2017, we hope to surpass 1 million child participants!


Inspired by the short film, ‘Caine’s Arcade,’ the Global Cardboard Challenge is an annual event presented by the Imagination Foundation that celebrates child creativity and the role communities can play in fostering it. This September, kids of all ages are invited to build anything they can dream up using cardboard, recycled materials and imagination. Then on Saturday, October 7th, 2017, a day that commemorates the flash mob that made Caine's day in the short film, communities come together and play!
