XUL Foundation is a branch of the communication for social change agency XUL. XUL Foundation was created in 2007 and aims to develop actions of communication for social change and drive social transformation processes that promote environmental and social sustainability, contributing to the collective and participatory construction of a plural, just society, and solidarity.

Our activities are based on communication methods that favour new models of partnerships and relationships. Promoting networking and the power of synergies, equal opportunity with respect to gender, race, status and identity, as well as the cultural and environmental values of different communities is a common thread running through everything we do.

At XUL Foundation, we apply social innovation to the issues that matter to us: public governance and citizen cooperation, the construction of a sustainable city, and the improvement of living conditions for the most disadvantaged groups in our society.

We can provide knowledge, diagnostic capability, design, and process dynamisation, communication, sensitization, awareness-raising, and mobilization for the development of projects at a local level or with a European dimension.

XUL Foundation, in its efforts to build networks, is an active part of the European network All Digital, the Andalusian Anti-Rumours Network, the living lab Córdoba Social Lab, the Ashoka Venture Board Sevilla of the social entrepreneurship network Ashoka and the Andalusian Fund of Municipalities for International Solidarity.

XUL Foundation staff and collaborators have a solid background in high social innovation and communication for social change.

Communication for Social Change

The XUL Foundation is dedicated to communication for social change, referred to as communication for sustainable social change and development that places people in the center of the communication process.

In the XUL Foundation we approach communication for social change in two aspects. First of all, projects for social intervention where communication, in its broadest sense, is the field of work itself. Secondly, we undertake communication and dissemination tasks in transnational European projects.
