Person Profile for Jose Donado

É em São Luís onde manifesto o meu propósito através de projetos, iniciativas e organizações.

O meu IKIGAI é nutrir os processos de integração e regeneração dos humanos e a Natureza.

As minhas pergunta guia são

  • Como podemos aprender a regenerar?
  • Como podemos regenerar a aprendizagem?
Motivation: “Suponha que o objetivo de um sistema educacional seja que as pessoas trabalhem em cooperação na comunidade enquanto exploram o seu potencial individual para participação criativa no desenvolvimento e manutenção de um relacionamento sustentável com o mundo natural”

Playlists & More


About Patterns Tab...

The Patterns tab allows for the compilation of a personal playlist of frequently-used Patterns--practices, processes, frameworks, tools, capacities, livelihoods and any other elements of transformative action.

There are four types of Pattern:

  • Design patterns: basic, singular patterns that can stand on their own;
  • Guiding patterns: paradigm-related patterns, that can create an identifying context for--that is, serve to group--design patterns;
  • Process patterns: an assemblage of multiple patters, that can be applied randomly or sequentially to form an intervention (often referred to as a pattern language);
  • Meta patterns: systemic level patterns, that enable cross-over between different Communities of Practice and their Patterns.

Note: Currently, there is only one Pattern entity in RKC, these distinctions will be built into this entity, until such time it becomes necessary to individuate.

Pattern is a generative field, in that a new entry can prompt the creation of a new Pattern page, using a red link.

Pattern can be nested, which means it can be connected to other patterns via multiple levels of organization. By using the Parent field, any Pattern can be connected to the next higher-order Pattern it belongs to.

Pattern Type Description
Sociocracy 3.0 process Supporting groups to evolve horizontal & agile organizations
Non formal education design Learning by doing in relation with context


About Interventions Tab...

The Interventions tab allows for the compilation of a personal playlist of frequently-used Interventions--unique instances of potentially transformative actions.

Interventions derived from Patterns, stand a better chance to be transformative. The aim is for our Interventions to be well-conceived, context-specific and consciously applied.

Intervention is a generative field, in that a new entry can prompt the creation of a new Intervention page, using a red link.

Intervention Description
Story of Place - São Luís 2023 Multiplier event iACT + CCC . Story of place with different stakeholders (remembering the Far past, recent past, present, and co-creating the recent future, regenerative future)

About Narratives Tab...

The Narratives tab enables Persons to create relevant narrative elements about themselves, such as stories, descriptions, past experiences, and happenings.

About Essence Tab...

The Essence tab allows for anyone in RKC (including oneself) to comment on what makes you unique along three different dimensions:
  • Aliveness: What energizes this being that really makes it come alive, beyond the functional of everyday existence.
  • Offering: The unique value a being 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 being that it is continually striving to manifest into existence.

Over time, this feature can offer deeper insights to what each individual brings to this co-creative space...
