ABOUT US

We are a network of people committed to freedom, human rights and the deepening of democracy in its participatory dimension, with gender equality and development on a human scale.

We believe that a greater incidence of social participation in the formulation, management and evaluation of public policies is the key factor to measure the progress or regression of a democracy.

We understand "participatory democracy" as a learning process, with advances and setbacks, that encompasses all forms of organization of a society, and that greater education, training and political formation, especially in youth, are the strategy for its strengthening.

WHAT WE DO

We work in alliance with Local Governments, Civil Society Organizations, Political Parties, Cooperatives and Schools, implementing educational, training, management training, studies and research projects.

We participate in national and international cooperation networks that aim to promote participatory democracy and build strategies that encourage political dialogue, social participation and pluralism.
