About Us

The Network for Community Initiatives (RICO for its spanish initials) is a network of communities and individuals in Latin America and Europe, urban and rural, which aims to act as a bridge for knowledge and practices, and fosters local initiatives that promote social, cultural, environmental and material well-being.

RICO is born in July 2018 from a series of workshops with Latin American activists in Berlin, Germany, on nonviolent communication, conflict resolution and appreciative inquiry. During the following months, RICO constitutes itself as a collective for the support of initiatives by different communities on the Latin American continent.
