When teams looked into how to promote their ideas among teens, many turned to social media, but Team Metanoia thought it would be more effective if it is interwoven into the school curriculum for their assigned country: South Africa.
The team believed that by mandating a course in the school curriculum such as the PSHE module (Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education) in the British system, the wellness message can reach more if not all students. An accompanied self-care app can help students put their knowledge into practice, and the most important practice Team Metanoia would like to promote is the concept of "pay it forward:"
"...The theory works by responding to a person's kindness to oneself, by being kind to someone else! In this way, one good deed can be paid forward to 3 other people, and each of those 3 people could pay it forward to another 3 people and so on..."
