We make “Épica”

We are convinced that the best way to influence our communities is through active citizenship. That is why epic is a movement of active citizens.

We seek to influence the present and future of our communities by getting involved and making use of political processes, but overcoming party limits: that is why we are a non-party political alternative.

We understand that to activate citizenship it is necessary to be connected with ourselves and our environment. Along this path, “épica” provides training tools for personal and collective growth; alongside opportunities to do and participate with others in activities and actions that transform our reality.

WORK AREAS

Political participation

épica es un movimiento ciudadano y un espacio político: sin límites partidarios, nos involucramos en procesos políticos para alcanzar un país que se corresponda con nuestros valores.

Impact on the communities

an active citizenry participates in the political life of the community. Active citizenships strengthen the democratic systems of the countries. We generate a movement of citizens that makes “épica” from the grassroots.

Personal development

we are convinced that to be actively involved in a community one must be truly connected with oneself and with one’s environment. People who are aware and who value personal growth and education are more able to have a positive impact in their communities.
