Welcome to the blog of Recrear Participación!

This blog will keep you updated on our progress with the organizing and delivering the workshop this summer.

Recrear Participación is a two week simulation workshop launched by Recrear this summer with two pilot projects which will serve as a launch for what will become a sustainable signature project for Recrear globally.

The project will be delivered in:

  • New Orleans, USA: June 28th to July 9th, 2011;
  • Dominican Republic: July 12th to July 26th, 2011.

  • Understand the basic principles of developing, managing and implementing sustainable projects;
