The World Life Experience, which in January 2018 began its first international voyage of eleven people on three continents, will open the entries for the 2nd edition.
From April 3rd to July 20th, 2018, the World Life Experience will receive registrations from those interested in conducting a one-day world tour, now on five continents.

Simultaneously, each participant in the trip will receive a monthly remuneration (2,500 euros) paid by the World Life Experience that also assures the expenses of the trip.
According to António Dias, director general of the World Life Experience, "the first edition, with two months of travel and accomplished tasks, is a success and a life experience for the group of eleven participants." He continues: the group has been in six different cities in five countries and has worked in reforestation, permaculture projects geared towards environmental sustainability, integrated workshops with refugees and cooperated in reconstruction projects. As the participants interact with people from the places they go, they become aware of the social, environmental and cultural diversity that exists in the world. "
So, for all those who wish to travel the world, to contribute to the planet through socially responsible attitudes and attitudes and to co-operate in social transformation, this is the "best job in the world". The applications, to be held at www.worldlifeexperience.com, have a registration fee of 9 euros, reverting part of the amount (2.5 euros) to the NGOs associated with the World Life Experience.
The selection process, from the eleven participants of the 2nd edition, will be carried out by an independent entity, a center for management studies and scientific organization (CEGOC) that is part of a European Training and Development Group (CEGOS) dedicated to the areas of training, consultancy and recruitment.

The participants, to be chosen for the 2nd edition, will be of different nationalities and will share the trip in social networks.
The stay in each city will be of two weeks and will have a program oriented towards social work, through integration in local organizations (NGOs), and a leisure component aimed at tourism and cultural activities. The 11 participants, from the 2nd edition of the World Life Experience, will travel from January 15 to November 27, 2019, and will have 6 days to explore each city, 6 days to volunteer with local organizations and 3 days of rest in each destination.
