A series which presents inspirational stories about attempts to update democracy in Brazil and throughout Latin America.

Impact Movement

Imagine living in a world where politics is synonymous with participation and trust. And that is part of the daily life of every citizen. This is the thread of Politics: How to Use, a weekly series that debuted on Globonews and is now also available on Videocamp. Instituto Update, a Brazilian organization that studies and promotes emerging political practices in Latin America, is responsible for the research that originated the series. In 2015, the organization mapped 700 initiatives in 20 countries, and in 2017 two of its co-founders, Rafael Poço and Beatriz Pedreira, decided to travel to 11 neighboring countries (Mexico, Guatemala, Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, Paraguay, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia and Brazil) to look closely at some of them. During the release month, while the episode was aired on GloboNews, Instituto Update organized free screenings in strategic environments followed by debates to promote a further understanding of the theme.
