Civic Council of Institutions
The Civic Council of Institutions is an association of non-partisan and voluntary associations that groups together more than 80 institutions of different types: civil society organizations, intermediary organizations of the private sector, neighbor associations, professionals, charity, among others. Its objective is to build a more participative community to articulate efforts between organizations, share best practices and generate projects in common. It also carries out citizen oversight work that tracks the tasks and commitments of local governments.
