Many young people have been called by their older relatives “magicians” just for helping with things we do in our daily basis like recovering an email accidentally deleted or changing the font on a text. Every day we learn something new about our computers and media but we know little about the ways technology can empower us to understand, practice and raise awareness on Human Rights. It´s clear that many webpages – including social media - today ban abusive content; the...

It is hard to believe that one of the most unequal countries in the world according to the Gini index; a “poor” country where people live surrounded by an ever-lasting history of violence and huge polarization, can be called a happy country. Or to be more specific, a country where people are genuinely happy. However according to a Gallup international survey, Colombia has continually been one of the happiest countries in the world, in fact the happiest country in 2013. I wo...

Employment is an essential topic in public policy because for many a job is much more than a salary. It´s the path to acquire what´s needed to break social restrictions and to raise generations of professionals who give back to their country (and the world) with the product of their investigation, entrepreneurship and functionality. These restrictions are often overcome through the social mobility built upon education and employment, that´s the reason why parents don’t hes...

The amount of people who daily learn and practice different languages through youtube; of those who meet in chat rooms and end up become great friends after talking on skype; plus the growing worldwide communities through which it is possible to meet people, buy products, volunteer, practice or learn new skills, discuss, raise awareness and understand new issues is outrageous. I have to say I´m really impressed by the way one can carry so many books on a little kindle and how...

I guess many of you when you were younger, asked yourselves what would you solve and how if you were president? I did it myself a lot of times, especially because living in Colombia means living surrounded by incipient violence. There are many things related to the never-ending violent history of Colombia that I would like to change: prostitution, drug dealing, scam or laundering but there is one that has particular importance for me. A few days ago I was studying about Chile...

A few days ago an LGBTI organization in Chile launched a children comic-book meant for kids to understand what family means outside the spectrum of conservative education and social prejudice that they are surrounded by. And the media went crazy on the topic - parents, teachers, young people and adults took a minute to have their say about the issue. Some people recognized it was necessary to teach at early ages values and realities that we should face with tolerance and respec...

Healthy living for most people is an option that only “sports people” get to enjoy. For most of us, jogging on Sundays and eating salad twice a week is already good enough to look after our bodies. However the more we grow and the more committed we are to academic or professional goals the less time we take to actually be healthy. This thought came to my mind because I recently went to the doctor and went out so happy that I wondered how was it possible for me to call gover...

The death penalty is the sentence of execution for lethal crimes and other capital crimes defined by the constitutions of the states where it is enforced; it is valid in 22 countries worldwide including China, North Korea, India, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia and the United States. This topic is very conflicting to me because I don’t follow the logic of “killing to show that killing is wrong” however I have known of so much evilness in a single person that it´s hard to belie...

I have never enjoyed reading much, probably because when education has a mistaken approach (as it is both in Colombia and in Chile) grades are more important than learning, and reading is everything but pedagogical or enriching. However one day it all changed when I found a webpage that shared classic books from top writers all over the world. In fact I read Animal Farm in 2 full days; Love in a Time of Cholera in 3 nights and the Metamorphosis in probably a day. I can’t ev...
