Reader Survey 2022
Hi there! We are El Colectivo 506, an independent media outlet led by women that creates solutions journalism with a special focus on rural Costa Rica. Can you spare a few minutes to help us learn more about our current and potential readers, and gather ideas for our future editions?

This survey can be filled out by frequent readers, new arrivals, or even people who have never heard of us before—all insights from those interested in Costa Rica and independent journalism, or the topics we cover, will help us grow and bring you stories of interest!

Before you go: would you like to tell us a story about your connection to Costa Rica/rural Costa Rica for our November 2022 edition, all about our reader communities? If you are not Costa Rican, you might tell us about one of the moments, people or places that sparked your love for this country, those moments when you realized that you could never forget this place. If you are Costa Rican, you might tell us about one trip or moment that helped spark your love for rural Costa Rica in particular, or your belief in rural Costa Rica's abilities to solve its own challenges. (If you prefer, you can also send us an audio to +506.8506.1506, or send us an email separately.)
