Why do we exist?

In Colombia, as well as in Latin America and the Caribbean, there is a shortage of independent think tanks dedicated to the creation and dissemination of knowledge that directly impacts the well-being of children and adolescents. We exist with a collaborative spirit that promotes perspectives from multiple disciplines, methods, and sectors. Our aim is to fill this gap and contribute to the betterment of children and adolescents’ lives through our collaborative and multidisciplinary approach.


Strengthen the centre through research, data and evidence to influence the public policy agenda.

Develop capacities to promote evidence-based solutions that positively impact the next generations

To be an authority in the applied multidisciplinary research on children and adolescents.

Enable and promote spaces to amplify the voices of children and adolescents.
