This article is the result of a case study on the Union of Assemblies of Communities (UAC), a socioenvironmental meeting created in 2006 from the confluence of several assemblies located mainly in the Argentine territory. The aim of this article is to trace a genealogy of the UAC and distinguish the main characteristics of its form of organization, which make it a unique experience in the country.It stands out its double functioning as a network and as a meeting, the diversity of actors and socioenvironmental problems addressed, the rotation and its scope beyond the local, among others. Regarding the methodology, this work is part of an exploratory research on a poorly researched case, and therefore basically aims to bring the reader closer to the subject, through a qualitative methodology and sources of information such as the material of the organization itself, observations and interviews, basically aimed at describing the main characteristics of the UAC, its emergence and its context, respecting the vision of the social actors involved in it.
