Who are we?

Rakonto

Imagine a world where the future wasn't scary.

We were trapped :

In 2019, we graduate from college with ambitions to change the world. We were soon disillusioned. Our experiences with companies obsessed with money over people quickly brought us back down to Earth. By this time, we had 10 alarms at 5-minute intervals to wake up to in the morning. Your alarm goes off, you're in bed staring at the ceiling. You know you're going to spend your day contributing to something that goes against your values so you can barely pay your rent. You open insta and see images of burning forests, plastic in the oceans, and violence at every level. You feel that everything is spinning out of control and you don't know what to do. So what do you do? You turn off your alarm clock and go back to bed. What's the point of getting up anyway?


That's when we made a big decision: to drop everything and go on a round-the-world trip with a project that really made sense to us.

rakonto, from our beginnings to today

04.2019

The creation of the association

Robin, Corentin and Magali found the association "Le tour du monde en 80 défis" (Around the world in 80 challenges). A world tour without planes is the starting point of this great adventure.

09.2019

The great departure

Departure for the world tour, with Portugal as the first destination.

03.2020

Impact of COVID

The COVID-19 pandemic forces the 2 partners to reconsider their plans. Robin returned to his studies, while Corentin tried to follow up the association. It's in this context that he meets Loreto while volunteering in Italy.

05.2021

The arrival of Loreto

Loreto joins the association, and with her, it evolves into Rakonto. A few months later, it will host its first Erasmus+ training course.

04.2023

The team expands

The team expands and recruits 2 new members, Elisa and Santiago, who bring with them a new impetus for the association after 2 years during which it has established itself well.

09.2023

A new identity

A few months after the arrival of the 2 new members, Alba, Adrian and Neshat also joined the team. So Rakonto takes the opportunity to put on a new skin and completely change its visual identity to better represent its mission!
