What is a CommPlace profile

Communities of Place entity pages are used to profile place-sourced constellations of potentially-transformative activity.

These entities can be nested, in that by identifying a Parent Community of Place, then Sibling and Offspring, will be automatically associated and accessible.

(Community of Place pages are generated from the Relations established from within Person or Initiative pages. Also, they can be established by identifying a non-existing Community of Place as a Parent. If existing, the link will be blue, if not yet existing, the link is red, and invites the page curator to create the page in question. )

The entity structure below is very similar to the Community of Practice, the same for all three types, with one exception: Communities of Place are where Interventions take place.

The Main section contains:

  • a few required fields, such as a brief description, parent/sibling/offspring and page curator(s);
  • a summary of key relations are provided here;
  • optionally, one has the ability to display relevant images, give a full name, and longer description;

Other tabs contain:

  • Sections that provides a space to organize:
    • Interventions that take place here;
    • narratives about this entity,
    • and essence entries for this Community of Place from any RKC participant.
These pages interact in generative ways with Entity pages--they can be referenced from an Entity page, if existing, the link will be blue, if new, the link is red, and invites the page curator to create the page in question.
Portugal Community of Place Profile CommPlace icon.png
Portugal is a country located on the Iberian Peninsula, in southwestern Europe, and whose territory also includes the Atlantic archipelagos of the Azores and Madeira. It features the westernmost point in continental Europe, and its Iberian portion is bordered to the west and south by the Atlantic Ocean and to the north and east by Spain, the sole country to have a land border with Portugal. Its two archipelagos form two autonomous regions with their own regional governments. Lisbon is the capital and largest city by population[1].

One of the oldest countries in Europe, its territory has been continuously settled, invaded and fought over since prehistoric times... and yet, it is still evolving.

It is home to many Communities of Place, with varying degrees of self-organizing, potentially-transformative activity. It is host to several change-maker networks and movements shaping emergent Communities of Practice.

About Essence Tab...

The Essence tab allows for anyone in RKC to comment on what makes this Community of Place unique along three dimensions:
  • Aliveness: What energizes a Community of Place that really makes it come alive, beyond the functional of everyday existence.
  • Offering: The unique value a Community of Place offers in order to bring a higher-order of viability and vitality to, or evolve a particular system they are working to transform (this is context specific).
  • Potential: A tendency in a Community of Place that it is continually striving to manifest into existence.
Over time, this feature can offer deeper insights to what each collective as a whole brings to this co-creative space.
