Welcome to CIVISOL. Here we don’t work to assist or alleviate problems; we create ideas, forces of systemic change to end them.
We work strategically through knowledge, innovation, and social teaming to reignite civism and solidarity, and to strengthen civil society. Individuals and organizations can then empower and disseminate the "revolutionary" idea that, because we are all equal in our humanity, everybody has a Natural/God-given/Human right to have rights.
Even those human beings with little or no money in a bank account; humans with more or less pigmentation in their skin; more or less testosterone; humans who pray in another temple, or do not pray at all; individuals who think differently and happen to speak a language that doesn't sound familiar.
Everyone has a right to have rights.
The “combo” of Rights with Obligations and vice-versa is what allows legitimate expectations to emerge within human relations. Legal certainty is the basis of civilization and the pivotal point of the universal and public protection system that Law is.
In CIVISOL we don´t believe that legal certainty and protection should be a luxury reserved for some powerful individuals or big corporations only. We resist the idea that the vast majority of human beings has to survive through asystemic assistance, episodic generosity, and ocassional compassion, no matter how much we admire these virtues.
CIVISOL reignites civism and solidarity to fuel bottom-up reforms in law and culture.
We seek to empower the citizens' end of the social contract. Through ideas and strategic support we contribute to create critical masses of people willing to claim and advance permanent and structural changes in the normative and cultural systems of society.
Changes capable of making democracy deliberative, justice effective, and formal development inclusive.

Is a not-for-profit organization that began in Cali, Colombia, strengthened in the capital city of Bogota, was created in New York City, began to be understood as a tiny global project in Tunisia and incorporated in Colombia and France. It is both a platform supporting systemic changes and an institute researching on civism, solidarity and bottom-up change.
CIVISOL is small foundation with great convictions. And even larger dreams. We are a growing community of people thinking and acting together in different places and languages around the world joined by shared convictions. It is run entirely by people volunteering their time and personal and professional skills to make changes in society not only for their sake, but for the good of all.
