Call for projects – Peace Civic Innovation Lab, Nariño, Colombia


The High Council for Post-Conflict of Colombia, the Center for Social Innovation of the Government of Nariño, and the Civic Innovation Project of the Ibero-American General Secretariat,  be organising the Civic Innovation Laboratory for Peace and Post-Conflict in Nariño, Colombia (#LABICxlaPAZ). This will be the first time that citizens participate directly in the generation and development of proposals and solutions for the main challenges in a post-conflict process. To this end, we are launching a call for projects for the first of these laboratories (Nariño, Cartagena and Medellin).

Civic Innovation Laboratories (LABIC) are spaces created to systematise and fast-track these spontaneous, citizen-driven innovations, which transform communities and can potentially be copied in other cities. The spaces can be used simultaneously for experimentation, learning and prototyping of solutions or proposals from a collaborative, non-competitive perspective. For 10 or 15 days, they serve as an assembly point for a variety of projects that are developed collaboratively by multidisciplinary teams of citizens from different countries, who bring with them their experiences, knowledge and cultures, making the laboratory a space for the delivery of specific proposals by citizens for citizens, as well as a space for intercultural interaction.

The call for #LABICxlaPAZ proposals will remain open from 13 to 25 February 2018 . Selected projects will be published on 20 October, with 10 per laboratory. On this same day, the call for collaborators wishing to work in the development of these projects will be launched.
