There are many areas of social intervention (NGOs, associations, etc.) that focus their efforts on social transformation (conferences, social projects, etc.)
At Essential Institute we support these entities and projects to facilitate the transition to higher levels of consciousness and wisdom and build a healthier and wiser society.

On October 30, 2006, “Postdata” opened in Madrid, an educational play against bullying. At the opening ceremony of this work, Cris Bolívar (Essential Institute) represented the University of Barcelona through the Research and Counseling Group (GROP) with whom she collaborates. The Autor Foundation initiative has also been supported by the Spanish Society of Authors and Editors (SGAE), which has created a specific teaching guide for the representation of “Postdata” in schools. Eduardo Bautista, president of the SGAE, also spoke at the opening event. http://www.sgae.es ; http://www.fundacionautor.org
Eight years later, a book on the subject has been published titled “Prevención del acoso escolar con educación emocional” (“Preventing bullying with emotional education”).
The Postdata play, about twenty minutes long, is presented in class as a strategy to prevent bullying and violence in general. This play is accompanied by a tutorial, which can provide guidance for other similar activities. Further reflections, strategies, techniques, activities and proposals for prevention are also given.
