Myrian Castello

Consultant for Camps

I am Myrian Castello, a social entrepreneur and activist for the right to dream, working to make dreaming a recognized human right and an essential part of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). Raised in the countryside of Brazil, I founded Dream Factory (Fábrica dos Sonhos) to inspire change and provide opportunities for those in rural, countryside, and marginalized areas. On this path, I met LALA and fell in love with where I want to be, as well as to improve lives in Latin America. With a background in cooperative pedagogy and culture of peace, I have worked extensively with youth and women entrepreneurship, socio-emotional education, and community development. I have participated in international leadership programs and a conference at the United Nations in NY. My work focuses on promoting the right to dream for all, addressing issues such as brain drain, school dropout, lack of access to quality education, inequalities, and poverty while seeking innovative solutions for a fairer and more prosperous world. I believe people, dreams, and education can change the world.
