POLIS is launched in Colombia

From Civic Compass, our research and insight unit launched POLIS, a training program on public policy advocacy for civil society organizations.

It started in Argentina and now it's Colombia's turn!

POLIS is a free program and a unique opportunity to enhance the impact of the social sector. Interested organizations can apply here until August 1 inclusive.

Non-profit organizations are relevant actors when it comes to generating important changes in society, but in Latin America they do not have access to the same resources and spaces of influence as the private sector, which affects their ability to participate in policy making.

At Civic Compass we propose to use our research, experience and access to resources to accompany civil society organizations or interest groups that want to generate a concrete reform at the level of regulation / public policy.

In this program you will access the same tools and strategies available in the private sector to amplify the impact of your campaigns. The participating teams will be able to strengthen their capacities to have an active role in informing the design of regulations or public policies that affect civil society. For example,

  • they will learn to use digital tools to generate campaigns with impact

  • incorporate good practices for communicating with stakeholders

  • devise strategies to engage with policy makers by offering actionable recommendations.

  • they will be able to put together the power map within the context in which they work, as well as identify the different actors who can support or oppose their actions.

  • they will learn how to write bills, resolutions and other legislative tools at the national, provincial and local levels.

If you want to know more, you can access a special information session next Thursday, July 27 via Zoom:< /a>

In its first edition, the program was open to organizations from Argentina , who have already participated in virtual and face-to-face training sessions in Buenos Aires. 10 selected organizations with their representatives are already advancing their real advocacy and impact! Follow our coverage on social media to find out further.

Don't be left out of this unique opportunity created by Civic Compass, Civic House's research and knowledge program. Apply here.< /p>
