What is the Communiversity?
The #Communiversity is a leadership hub and learning village in Guatemala where youth from Central America emerge as leaders, knowledge brokers and practitioners that will lead the transition towards just, resilient and thriving communities. As an internationally recognized gathering place, the SERES Communiversity facilitates cross-pollination among local leaders, community-based practitioners, researchers, scholars, students and the philanthropic community who are committed towards developing a more socially and environmentally equitable world.
