Movilizatorio is a laboratory for citizen participation and social innovation that has been incubated by Purpose. "We work with the aim of identifying, strengthening and implementing the best practices of mobilization, participation and innovation, through the sum of research, strategy, communication and technology," says its director, Juliana Uribe. "Being a laboratory allows us to learn through practice in a thoughtful way."
Through its laboratory, Movilizatorio tests ideas as they arise in order to achieve results "that are commensurate with the realities in which we intervene, by generating opportunities and alternative solutions to challenges that require flexibility, creativity and innovation."
Social innovation is at the heart of this social enterprise because "new ideas (products, services and models) are the ones that simultaneously meet social needs and create new social relationships or collaborations." In addition, Movilizatorio defends, using its technology tools, human and environmental rights, promotes citizen participation, generates new changes in behavior and narratives and mobilizes the citizenry.
