Colombia 2020, Construyendo País desde las Regiones
Media associated with this campaign
Overview of this campaign
After a very successful project, launched at the last Bogotá International Book Fair, in which, through stories of a group of animals that live together, children from 7 to 12 years old are taught about citizenship and values, as well as to understand the problems of our country such as corruption, elections, migration, education and health systems, among others, comes a new version of The Village, as a remedy to overcome polarization.
Through eight stories starring the already known and very particular animals of La Aldea, we seek to approach in a more pleasant and relaxed way to the main tensions that cross the national agenda and becomes an excuse to provoke conversations in which all , children, young people and adults can open up to the opinion of the other, question their certainties, and, if necessary, build new arguments considering the opposite perspective or even change their minds.
The characters and situations of La Aldea become a mirror in which we can not only observe ourselves, but think and reflect on the way we face the main challenges we have as a country.
With this, it is sought to open dialogues in the houses (with the radical traditionalist grandfather of right or left), classrooms (the teacher with strong leftist or right-wing ideas), jobs (the boss who defends the government at all costs on duty and the worker who rains him) and so on, in all areas of our daily lives.
The eight stories of The Village are presented in eight fascicles with clear and enjoyable language, and with beautiful illustrations.

Likewise, framed in this result, the delivery of the Colombia2020 Prize "Country Builders" is maintained, in recognition of the best practices applied to the construction of peace in educational institutions nationwide. A specific strategy is designed to carry out the call four months in advance. This requires a joint work with the Javeriana University, an entity that is in charge of the technical direction of the award. That includes previous meetings to define the methodology, categories, jury and scholarships that the university awards as a prize to the first places of the three categories of public school initiatives, private school initiatives and teachers. A communication and visibility campaign is also designed and implemented to amplify the call and announce the winners of the prize and its good practices. This activity is aimed at the educational community (children, youth, teachers and managers).
