A space for strengthening the Third Sector of Córdoba and promoting social innovation to find the solution to social challenges. Inspired by the Design Thinking methodology, U Theory and other collaborative techniques to generate collaborative projects with pure social innovation DNA.
XUL Foundation has been the main agent behind the Anti-Rumours Network, which arose in response to prejudices, unfounded opinions and stereotypes affecting immigrants in Andalusia, in order to identify, halt and dismantle these rumours, promoting better management of intercultural coexistence.
XUL Foundation launched the Villa del Río (Córdoba) School of Citizen Participation, conceived as a space for participation, meeting, dialogue and collaborative work that involves associations, groups and citizens with the aim of learning to dialogue in a constructive and positive way.
XUL Foundation was the entity responsible for implementing this social innovation project in Andalusia. We have boosted different social projects related to the improvement of educational success among children and youngsters and the creation of green employment for young people.
Promoted by the Association for Social Innovation in Andalusia, in which XUL Foundation participates, with the aim of integrating social innovators from entrepreneurship, civil society and public entities to work, share experiences and talent, and to take on socially innovative projects.
XUL Foundation promoted this project, placing special emphasis on actions to facilitate better communication and collaboration between the organizations involved in the project and the rest of the Andalusian society, setting up training and meetings, both face-to-face and virtual.
With this project, through approaching people working at traffic lights, XUL Foundation aimed to bolster a positive image for migrants as people integrated into society who act as a driving force for the defence of human rights and the fight against xenophobia.
