On May 24 at the Comfandi Cultural Center, 43 social initiatives were recognized in the Special Edition of the Civic Award for a Better City. There were 20 finalists from Cali and 11 from Yumbo, who received seed capital to strengthen their community processes. This version highlights social inclusion, community development, and artistic and cultural projects that contribute to the construction of a better city.

For two months, the finalist initiatives participated in a training process which gave them tools that enabled their long-term sustainability and growth. In addition, the initiatives were given greater visibility through interviews conducted by the media.

The Civic Award, Compromiso Valle, and all the partners that made this Special Edition possible invite the people of Valle del Cauca to get to know the finalist initiatives and recognize the work of each of the participants: Get to know them here:
