Solution Pitch 

The Problem

Brazil sees low political participation and even less interest in the political culture. This generates apathy, lack of dialogue, intolerance and violence. All of this points to the rise of disinformation, extremism, authoritarianism and democratic fragility. Without a prepared and articulated civil society, Brazil will continue to be overwhelmed by public problems.

The Solution

Politize! produces free and unbiased content of political education on the internet, trains civic leaders for being capable of solving public problems and trains teachers to educate the youth in the process to become an engaged citizen.


  • 93 million unique users
  • 593,000 social media followers
  • 500 volunteers
  • Over 2,500 civic leaders trained
