Do you have an idea to help a community? (for example Stoves for Guatemala). Fantastic! We are very excited that we might be able to help you with this ICO Initiative. Please review our ICO Critical Success Factors below and then we will ask you to complete our ICO Initiative Development Intake Form for evaluation.

Do you have an Idea to start an ICO Community in your town/area? Do you want to know how to start one? One example is the ICO Nepal Community. Starting an ICO Community can be very rewarding and exciting. This brief overview should assist you. 

Do you have an Idea that could provide specialist support and knowledge to more than one community? e.g Centre for Innovative Housing. ICO Centres provide services and support to our Initiatives and Communities Worldwide. If you have an Idea for a new ICO Service or Centre, we would be very pleased to hear from you.

If you are not sure yet which Idea Stream your Idea fits into or if you require any assistance, please email us at: Info@InnovativeCommunities.Org and we will be delighted to assist you.
