This Cooperation Circle (CC) is formed by students of the University of San Carlos in Guatemala Law School. They have the need to share what they know, such as their religious practices and traditions, and want to understand what their country was like before the Constitution. Founding members are from different traditions: Kaqchikel Spirituality, Evangelicalism and Catholicism. They enjoy participating in the interfaith movement to share their spiritual knowledge and understanding of Mother Nature with their brothers and sisters. Recently, members of the CC went to Lake Atitlán where there is a submerged city covered by water from the lake. They went there to ask for wisdom and for the water to calm down. One of their dreams is for people to understand that we are children of Mother Nature and that we need to live in peace with one another. In the group they live for dignity, solidarity, spirituality and, above all, respect for elders as wisdom carriers. This is what they offer to URI.
