Beyond Development: Building Effective Networks in Guatemala

October 7-9, 2011 - Patzún, Guatemala

Conference Description:

“Mas que Desarrollo” is a biennial international conference bringing together international, regional, and local community actors involved in grass-roots development work and research in Guatemala. A major focus of the conference is converting the research and the experience of participants into new, creative and practical solutions to community problems. 

In 2010 in Guatemala, numerous natural disasters and the continued global and local recessions have made clearer than ever the urgent need for effective and collaborative networks to share of resources and information.   We invite all interested parties - international NGOs, Guatemalan affiliates of NGOs, government representatives and unaffiliated Guatemalans - to attend.

Any questions should be addressed to contact@futuroscolectivos.com.

Costs of the conference are: $75 for international participants, $25 for staff from Guatemalan nongovernmental organizations, and free for unaffiliated Guatemalan nationals.
