We have 3  Idea Streams...

1.  I have an Idea for an ICO Initiative or Project. e.g Stoves for Guatemala. We are very pleased that you have an Idea for an ICO Initiative. Please review our ICO Critical Success Factors below and then we will ask you to complete seven basic questions in an Online Form. ICO Initiative Development Form - 7Q

2. I have an Idea to start an ICO Community and want to know how to start one e.g ICO Courtenay Community. Starting an ICO Community can be very rewarding and exciting.  This brief overview should assist you. An Introduction to Building an ICO Community.

3. I have an Idea for an ICO Service which provides specialist support and knowledge 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, 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.

The Timberline and Carihi International Co-op class just returned back from their work placement trip to Nepal. A group of 23 students and chaperones spent their spring break experiencing the culture and adventures the small country had to offer. The class worked with InnovativeCommunities.org Foundation on the Irrigation Initiative, and managed to raise enough money to fund 1.5 kilometers of the irrigation canal. This effort helped to aid thousands of farming families in the remote village of Lawachowk that could not have funded this project on their own.
