    • Communities Of Practice – Leveraging Impact By Learning Together
      Join us to explore what is a Community of Practice (CoP) and what can be their role in strengthening community-led responses to societal challenges. In this online session, we will hear stories from three Communities of Practice from the ECOLISE network. These CoPs bring people with a shared passion to learn, experiment and innovate together. We explore what makes it inspiring to be part of a CoP, how CoPs can organize themselves effectively, and how they make an impact. We will explore the idea of establishing a ‘CoPs ecosystem’ within the Communities for Future framework. We discuss the benefits and requisites for multilateral collaboration between different CoPs, weaving pieces together for a broader systemic view and pathways to societal transformation at large. We are excited to have you co-creating this vision further with us! The CoPs that were presented in our launching event are: – UrbanA (Urban Arenas for Sustainable and Just Cities) – Municipalities in Transition – BLAST (Blended Adult Learning for the Social-ecological Transition). What is a Community of Practice (CoP)? A Community of Practice (CoP) is a group of people who “share a concern or a passion for something they do and learn how to do it better as they interact regularly” (E. & B. Wenger-Trayner 2020). Beyond tangible outputs like innovative tools, methods, products or improved processes, a CoP has the potential to widen perspectives, change behavior and mindsets on an individual and collective level and can thus be considered as system shifting. Originally CoP participants were from the same business, organisation or academic departments who would meet regularly face to face. Nowadays CoPs are taking shape both within organisations and between organisations as well as within and across disciplines and sectors. In socio-ecological transition movements – such as permaculture, transition networks and eco-villages – CoPs have the potential to become systems and spaces that have real power and influence. Pioneering efforts that have hovered at the periphery can become the norm and practices developed by courageous communities can become accepted standard. When people have environments in which they can learn and explore with ease and curiosity, they no longer hesitate about adopting new approaches and methods. (BLAST CoPs guide, draft V1.0)

    • Research Questions of your Community or Collective Initiative?
      This is a space for you or your group to share some of your questions. Maybe you have some answers and you would like to know more? Maybe your community has a real problem for which is looking for a solution? Maybe together we can help by sharing our knowledge or existing knowledge or by finding Universities and projects that can support you and your collective. At the moment the COMETS project is precisely doing this but simultaneously many other project have similar goals in the several fields. Take the opportunity and share your QUESTION and contribute to ANSWER the questions of others.
