David Riveros Garcia

Reacción, Paraguay
Founder & President
Ciudad del Este, Paraguay
David is the Founder and President of reAcción Paraguay, an organization that uses civic education, technology, and grassroots mobilization to enable youth to wield power strategically and promote change by demanding accountability from government.
David started reAcción when he was 18 after leading a 3 weeks-long, peaceful mass demonstration against corruption in the education system. For his activism, he was named a Global Changemaker by the British Council and a Youth Ambassador of the Americas by the US Embassy. David has presented as panelist at the World Economic Forum (LAC), the International Anti-Corruption Conference, and the Civil Society Policy Forum at the World Bank–IMF Annual Meetings.
His organization’s projects were featured in publications by Transparency International, the UN’s Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean, and the World Bank. David has worked as a consultant on citizen engagement, social accountability, and open government for the World Bank and USAID. He led the development of Paraguay’s Healthcare Ministry’s official open data tool.
He has published research on the challenges of redefining political participation in the 21st century, the anachronism of democratic institutions, and their effects on youth political engagement. David is currently doing his Masters in International Development as a Chevening Scholar at the London School of Economics and Political Science.
