About us

Komons – created in 2019 and based in Madrid – is conceived to harness the potential of data, technology and collective action to confront the key challenges facing civil society. We have a unique expertise in digital analysis and media research, communications strategies and movement building that allow us to enhance collective intelligence and accelerate social change processes. As practitioners, we have applied these hybrid methods on campaigning, activism, strategic communication, narrative change and e-democracy processes. We coordinate social change projects in Europe, Africa and expanding to Latinamerica. We are a fast growing, human-centered, social company with caring, honesty and openness as its core values.
