What is a Initiative profile

An Initiative profile is the first step for you, as a potentially transformative change-maker collective, to participate in the Regenerative Knowledge Commons.

The Main section contains:

  • a few required fields, such as brief description, email, associated localities, organization and membership types and page curator(s);
  • a summary of key relations and description of practice are provided here as well;
  • optionally there is also the ability to display multiple images, any relevant links (websites, social media, other affiliations), full social-entity name, start/end dates, a longer description, motivation for participating in RKC and legal structure (if any);

Other tabs contain:

  • and, Playlists & More section that provides a space to organize:
    • frequently used patterns and interventions
    • narratives about one's Initiative,
    • and essence entries for this Initiative from any RKC participant.

Playlists & More


About Patterns Tab...

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

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

Pattern Type Description
Multiplier event design Erasmus+ multiplier event
Intellectual output design Erasm+ intellctual outputs

About Processes Tab...

The Interventions tab allows for the compilation of a Initiative 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 Essence Tab...

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