Person Profile for Nuno da Silva

I'm also an educator in regenerative development at the Regenesis Institute for Regenerative Practice, trainer of the Council of Europe, the Transition Network and the ProSocial pools of trainers and a Curator of the Emergence Network.

I have a pre-Bologna degree in Economics. I've dedicated my first professional decade to work as an educator and trainer of trainers and youth workers in experiential, collaborative and participatory learning methodologies in Portugal, Europe and around the world, and on topics such as Participation and Citizenship, Global Education, Peace Education, Intercultural Learning, Human Rights, Diversity and Inclusion, Organizational Development and Project Management.

Motivation: I'm highly committed, caring and enthusiastic about being a resource to people and organisations in supporting the development of their capabilities and capacity to better harmonize human activities with the ecosystems that sustain life on earth.

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.


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.


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...
