Consolidating

We study in order to identify and strengthen social change models while using empirical evidence to elaborate and disseminate best practices.

Finding ways of measuring the results obtained is now an essential component of work in the third sector. This is fundamental when it comes to reporting to stakeholders and for the evaluation of the sustainability, scalability and replicability of the interventions.

Our actions, as well as our monitoring and evaluation of projects carried out by others, are based on a results analysis in order to elaborate, model and disseminate best practices, with the aim of recognizing and strengthening social change models. The best practices which we identify are constantly subject to research and transformation with the aim of consolidating them over time.

After all, social innovation is a continuous process of learning, sharing and refinement of the methods necessary to achieve the changes that we wish to see in the world.
