The third “Communities for Future” online session took place on December 2nd. 55 people participated in a Zoom call to explore what is a Community of Practice (CoP) and what can be their role in strengthening community-led responses to societal challenges. Three CoPs from the ECOLISE network at different stages of their evolution were represented; BLAST (Blended Adult Learning for the Social-ecological Transition), Municipalities in Transition (MiT) and UrbanA (Urban Arenas for Sustainable and Just Cities).
The session was very much a first step in the Communities for Future journey to develop a CoPs Ecosystem, asking key questions and seeking diverse insights, more so than offering concrete solutions. The format of the two hour session was broken into two parts:
– A basic overview of what is a CoP and a short round table with participants from each of the three invited projects.
– An interactive process in breakout rooms using the MIRO board to explore the question: “How do we successfully weave together a useful and vibrant collaboration framework for various CoPs, supporting eco-social just transition?”
