Ruta Civica (Civic Route) is a Mexican volunteer based organization working in civic education and promoting citizen participation in public affairs. Through different campaigns, our mission is to develop the involvement of citizens in the making of the Constitution and laws for Mexico City and its urban planning. Since land zoning, construction and public works decisions have to pursue the public interest. We organize and train neighborhood committees and groups, as well as provide independent technical expert advice on urban and sustainability projects. We also work in educating, preventing and denouncing corruption.
Even if we recently incorporated as a formal nonprofit organization in 2015, our urban activism and coalitions go back to 2010. We believe that having fun and being creative can boost the messages of technical analysis and data. We are slowly building an urban constituency that can promote large systemic reforms for an inclusive and sustainable city.
