Who are we?
Get Up And Go Colombia© is an organization that promotes tourism in regions previously affected by the armed conflict through activities and projects, converting former war zones into destinations for local and international tourists to explore culture, food, nature, and more importantly creating peace, inclusion and diversity through tourism and language exchange.
With our activities and projects in tourism we are contributing to peacebuilding in our country by inspiring tourists from all over the world to get to know our culture, tradition, history and biodiversity. Through telling powerful stories, we are able to change the bad reputation that the conflict has left the country. We know it is an arduous journey but we are optimistic and we believe in second chances. We want to be an example and we are demonstrating that through small actions it is possible to produce big changes in our society.
By 2022, we hope to be a leading Colombian organization that promotes tourism in regions previously affected by the armed conflict through activities and projects lead by bilingual university students and professionals, youth affected by the conflict, members of the LGBTIQ community and reintegrated ex-combatants of armed groups together creating peace, inclusion and diversity through tourism and language exchange.
