The organization presented in ColungaHUB the main results and conclusions of two studies related to the implementation and effectiveness of the Law of the Lobby in municipalities, and the status of the Community Councils of Civil Society (COSOC) at the national level.
In the years 2015 and 2016, the Multitudes Foundation launched the first versions of the studies on the Communal Councils of Civil Society (COSOC) - one of the tools of Law 20,500 on Associations and Citizen Participation in the Public Management-, and the implementation of the Law of the Lobby in municipalities. This year they decided to do version 2.0 of both studies, to constantly monitor the application of both laws that directly involve civil society.
The launch was made in ColungaHUB, and called various social organizations, and the presentation of the studies was in charge of Álvaro Ramírez, President of the Multitudes Foundation and Jaime Ibarra, Co-founder of the organization.
