2811 has developed methodologies for accelerating social and ecological change since 2016, and offers this experience in a Social Innovation Training program.
We collaborate with people and organizations to install best practices and knowledge to accelerate social and ecological change.
2811 has developed methodologies to accelerate social and ecological change since 2016 when we launched the book “Hazte Cargo”. In 2017 and 2018 we trained more than 200 social innovators and agents of social change in 8 regions of Chile. That same year we launched the book “Social Innovation in the Brazilian Context”, and in 2020, we launched the “Tool Kit” for change agents with Movilizatorio, in Colombia.
Based on this, 2811 offers face-to-face and virtual learning modules in the following areas:
