El Mangle is a campus designed to create meaningful, positive actions

Our vision is to be a center that incubates innovative civil society organizations and business enterprises – and the scalable solutions they unleash – to create sustainable well-being at multiple scales.

We do this by providing a respected, neutral venue for discussing and acting on critical issues, and by channeling resources that encourage and engage civil society.

Conceptually, the campus is being built on three foundations:

To Engage Civil Society
To Restore Natural Resources
To Promote Economic and Civic Wellbeing

We invite you to explore our approach and partnerships, schedule an event in one of our unique meeting and social spaces, or simply visit and enjoy this uniquely tranquil – and wonderfully dynamic – beachfront setting in downtown La Paz.
