Movilizatorio. Connecting for change

Movilizatorio is a laboratory for social innovation and citizen participation that was born in 2016 as an initiative of Purpose for Colombia. Its objective is to strengthen collective leadership as an engine for social transformation and to support the development of high impact democratic initiatives with the support of technological tools. Movilizatorio is made up of an interdisciplinary team led by women, which seeks to promote citizen mobilization and train different agents of change in the regions most affected by the armed conflict, placing special emphasis on local peacebuilding processes. Some of the projects it has developed are: Say it and then do it; The Avispero; Colidérate; among others. In 2018 it won the Tomorrow's Peacebuilders Awards 2018 in the category of non-violent action.

Frequency: how often does the innovation take place: only once, sporadically, or is it permanent or regular?

Mode of Selection of Participants: is the innovation open to all participants, access is restricted to some kind of condition, or both methods apply?

Type of participants: those who participate are individual citizens, civil society organizations, private stakeholders or a combination of those?

Decisiveness: does the innovation takes binding, non-binding or no decision at all?

Co-governance: is there involvement of the government in the process or not?
