WHAT IS IT?

Our history

Our proposal was innovative for the historic moment; it shaped us, from the beginning, as an organization that assumed a promoter and transformer role. How? Generating collective knowledge, as one of our premises was that – what cannot be managed individually has greater chances to be realized when it is done collectively- i.e. when it develops in and for the community.
Thus our work was oriented towards a way of BEING and DOING in which every actor in society had a role and should fulfil a fundamental task in the co-construction of the country, with the ultimate aim of generating actions to achieve Sustainable Development.

We decided to act as a bridge to channel and articulate this need to see ourselves as a whole, so we started to create spaces to gather experience and knowledge, to build a more sustainable society for the country.

In our effort to promote bonding, we have also pioneered the use of technology as a way to create instances of encounter, dialogue and collaboration. An example was the release in 2001 of our Portal Plaza Nueva, a site of information and opportunities to develop the SR in its different fields. The Portal fosters work in networks through online volunteering and the Bank of social projects, also promoting the relations of synergy through a directory of civil society.

The mode in which we have installed the theme evolution has also been precursor and purposeful. Reviewing our communicational history we identified actions and processes that were ahead of its time, outstanding by creativity, innovation, clarity, professionalism and passion to communicate, without disregarding the origin and institutional tradition.

We understood from the start that to create a culture of SR in Chile, it was necessary to build concepts which take a common meaning for all stakeholders and to, ultimately, help to rewrite the grammar of the social fabric. So in our early days we dared to use terms such as “filantropiar” (philanthropy used as a verb) and in this last period, we’ve coined the concept “creative inspiration” as a work methodology for all our actions.

After 17 years of history, we have evolved to refine and integrate each one of the changes both at global and local levels, finding that the initial idea which led to create our Organization is still in force. And today, more than ever, the world is aware of the need for a sustainable development discussion, to generate a world where people and their needs is the engine that move actions and construct realities.

OUR HISTORY START THE YEAR 1997, WHEN CHILE WAS IN A SOCIAL AND POLITICAL CONTEXT IN WHICH EACH MEMBER OF THE SOCIETY ACTED FROM AN INDIVIDUAL POINT OF VIEW, AND EXPRESSED THAT WAY THEIR OPINIONS AND VISIONS ON HOW DIFFERENT ACTORS WERE TO PROCEED TO MAKE OUR COUNTRY BE DEVELOPED AND EQUITABLE.
