Conlupa was a ten month project from August 2012 to June 2013. We invite you to take a look at what we did during our time together and to be inspired by links and information regarding Human Rights that you might find useful.

National leaders training 2013…historical!

  Last weekend we had the honour of going to Colombia’s most attended national leaders training ever. Almost 60 participants from Bogotá, Medellín and Manizales gathered for two days in a cold but beautiful country house near Bogotá. We were invited to participate and hold an activity -of course, about human rights. It was really...

Human Rights Day with CISV Medellín

Human Rights Day with CISV Medellín

On April 20th we invited everyone in CISV Medellín to a Human Rights Day with Con Lupa. In the weeks prior to the event people were told to register so that we could have some idea about how many would show up. A few days before we could count around 15 participants so it was...
Eating like a Colombian

Eating like a Colombian

This is a short introduction to my world of food for the last three months. A world I have thoroughly enjoyed! I very quickly integrated myself into the Colombian eating culture. Strange things happened too, I started eating breakfast, something I very rarely would make the effort to do in Norway. A reason for this...

Minicamp in La Estrella

Minicamp in La Estrella

During the 2nd and the 3rd of March Con Lupa went to a Minicamp with Cisv Medellín kids and leaders in La Estrella. It was a strange minicamp for me, because it was the first time that I went to a minicamp with 23 leaders and 23 kids – one leader per kid –  usually...
Bolombolo

The alarm began to sound at five o’clock in the morning, no one wanted to wake up. It was too early for the usual time, but we had to arrive at 7am to Itagüí, so we couldn’t be lazy more time. At 7am Jorge, Nolberto and Isabel of Conconcreto Foundation were waiting for us to...
Bogotá - the Bold and Beautiful

Bogotá – the Bold and Beautiful

During a weekend in February we swapped our village life in Medellín with the big city-life of Bogotá. For me it was the first encounter with the grand capital of Colombia. However, through Andrea, Diana and Adelaida, I had learned quite a bit about the city before arriving. The transportation system for example, the infamous...
