Spaces for transformation
The Civic Factory is a network of physical community spaces. These are open spaces promoted by citizens and serve as a meeting point for administrations, academia, businesses and citizens themselves.
In them relationships are not hierarchical and no one comes on behalf of a particular institution or organization. Relationships are established on the basis of collaboration and mutual learning. All of this, without prejudice to the recognition of the greater experience or capacity that some people may have in certain matters.
This recognition allows us to move forward because leadership and consensus emerge spontaneously and are distributed based on the recognizable value of the contributions of the participants.
In this context, processes of collective intelligence and collective construction are developed that discover new ways of approaching and solving problems of cities, communities and people.
