About us

The Network of Community Initiatives – RICO is a collective of people in Latin America and Europe working for a transformation towards a world of sovereign and interdependent communities, whose inhabitants relate responsibly to each other and to the territory.

As with all joint work, RICO has been built up little by little, through multiple exchanges between its members, who have formed friendships, trust and, over time, strong bonds of solidarity. Therefore, although RICO acquires its legal status in December 2019 in Germany and in 2021 in Colombia, we cannot reduce its origin to these moments.

Where are we headed?

At RICO, the route is always set by our members and the different processes in the territory. Here you can see a series of testimonials from our members with dreams and ideas for the future of the network.
