People impacted



* Promote integration among JCI members and prospects of JCI Brasil-Japão as so as other local organizations. So we will be attracting prospects that may become JCI members; * Encourage contact with nature and culture through an informal activity; * Arouse the interest of the participants in the art of photography.


Attendees will be taken for tours in public places - like parks and exhibitions - in São Paulo and surrounding areas. In such tours an expert in photography will monitor the activity to show participants some tips and techniques to register the trip on their cameras, encouraging them to the art of photography. It will not be mandatory for attendees to have professional cameras; the idea is that the tips and lessons can be applied to conventional digital cameras. In addition to enjoy the tour, attendees will have the opportunity to promote networking.


In the case of JCI Brasil-Japão the first tour was promoted in a tourist place because of its beauty. This is an appeal to encourage people's participation. However, this project can also be used as an opportunity to start a partnership with another organization or company that has some interest regarding photography. For example, a museum or historic place that is interested in constitute a photographic collection, but doesn't have a staff to do so.
