RKC Co-Create

One of the two interdependent aspects of the RKC wiki is Co-Create, where regenerative commoners--individuals and collectives, who aspire to take on transformative roles--deepen their self-knowledge of who they are uniquely--their essence. And, how they are called to dedicate their energies, to develop their own and others’ capacity to participate co-creatively in the process of systemic transformation.


Co-Create tells the unfolding story from the perspective of potentially transformative activity in a Community of Place and is guided by the principle of relating, which aspires to weave greater wholeness into each transformative ecosystem through authentic participation, alignment of purpose and sense of belonging.

There are various wiki page types relevant to Co-Create, and each one has a set of features. They all follow a similar organization, with some Basic and Summary info on top and multiple tabs across the middle.

Entity structures

Each tab below describes the various types of pages in Co-Create.

[edit]

This is the most essential, required page type in order for an individual to participate in RKC.

  • Main: The main section--infobox (right) and main column (left)--contains:
    • a few required fields, such as brief description, user name, email, and associated localities;
    • optionally there is also the ability to display multiple images, any relevant links (websites, social media, other affiliations), a longer description of oneself, motivation for participating in RKC;
    • and, lastly, a summary of key relations are provided here as well.
  • Relations: The Relations tabs contains two critical features that serve to connect the Person to Initiative they are associated with and/or to Ecosystems (Communities-of-Place or Communities-of-Practice) they are participating in.
  • Practice: The Practice tab is for individual RKC participants who are aspiring or existing regenerative practitioners; it enables them to display a more detailed profile about the kind of work they do.
  • Patterns: The Patterns tab allows for the compilation of a personal playlist of frequently-used Patterns--practices, processes, frameworks, tools, capacities, livelihoods and any other kinds of transformative action.
  • Interventions: The Interventions tab allows for the compilation of personal playlist of frequently-used Interventions--concrete instances or expressions of Patterns in Community of Place.
  • Narratives: The Narratives tab allows for creation of various types of narrative, such as a bit of self-narrative or a relevant happening.
  • Essence: The Essence tab allows for anyone in RKC (including oneself) to comment on what makes you unique along three different dimensions. Over time, this feature can offer deeper insights to what each individual brings to this co-creative space.

Please Note: Person, Initiative, Locality, Community of Place, Community of Practice, Pattern, and Intervention are generative displays:

  • Blue links, link to an existing page;
  • Red links, prompt the creation of a new page with the appropriate form and template.

[edit]

This is the most essential, required page type in order for an collective to participate in RKC. It is somewhat similar to Person, but has some very important differences, highlighted below.

  • Main: The Main section --infobox (right) and main column (left)--contains:
    • a few required fields, such as brief description, email, associated localities, organization and membership types and page curator(s);
    • optionally there is also the ability to display multiple images, any relevant links (websites, social media, other affiliations), an Initiative's full name, start/end dates, a longer description, motivation for participating in RKC and legal structure (if any);
    • and, lastly, a summary of key relations are provided here as well.
  • Relations: The Relations tabs contains two critical features that serve to connect this collective to Initiative it is related to and/or this collective to Ecosystems (Communities-of-Place or Communities-of-Practice) it is participating in.
  • Practice: The Practice tab is for Initiatives who are aspiring to or engage in an existing regenerative practice to display a more detailed profile about the kind of work they do.
  • Organization: The Organization tab enables Initiatives to display a more detailed profile about how they organize themselves, including: current resourcing scheme; vision, mission, aims; and organizational cohesion.
  • Patterns: 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.
  • Interventions: The Intervention tab allows for the compilation of an Initiative's playlist of Interventions--concrete instances or expressions of Patterns in Community of Place.
  • Narratives: The Elements tab allows for creation of various types of narrative, such as a bit of self-narrative, a relevant happening, an interaction with some other Person, Initiative, Community of Place, Community of Practice, or Pattern, and/or an intervention, the use of a pattern in a specific context.
  • Essence: The Essence tab allows for anyone in RKC (including members of collective) to comment on what makes your Initiative unique along three different dimensions. Over time, this feature can offer deeper insights to what each collective brings to this co-creative space.


Please Note: Person, Initiative, Locality, Community of Place, Community of Practice, Pattern, and Intervention are generative displays:

  • Blue links, link to an existing page;
  • Red links, prompt the creation of a new page with the appropriate form and template.

[edit]

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

Communities of Place 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 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 Community of Place 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.

  • Main: The Main section--infobox (right) and main column (left)--contains:
    • a few required fields, such as a brief description, parent/sibling/offspring of Community of Place and page curator(s);
    • optionally, one has the ability to display relevant images, give a full name, and longer description;
    • and, lastly, a summary of key relations are provided here as well.
  • Intervention: The Interventions tab allows for the listing of Interventions--concrete instances or expressions of Patterns associated to a particular Community of Place.
  • Narratives: The Narratives tab allows for creation of various types of narrative, such as a bit of self-narrative about the Community of Place, a relevant happening, and/or, an intervention, the expression of a Pattern in a specific context.
  • Essence: The Essence tab allows for anyone in RKC to comment on what makes ya Community of Place unique along three different dimensions. Over time, this feature can offer deeper insights to what each locality or ecosystem brings to this co-creative space.

Please Note: Community of Place Parent, Interventions, and Narratives are generative displays:

  • Blue links, link to an existing page;
  • Red links, prompt the creation of a new page with the appropriate form and template.

[edit]

Communities of Practice entity pages are used to profile translocal constellations of potentially-transformative activity that typically focus on one field of practice.

Communities of Practice can be nested, in that by identifying a parent Community of Practice, then sibling and offspring, will be automatically associated and accessible.

(Community of Practice pages are generated from the Relations established from Person or Initiative pages. Also, they can be established by identifying a non-existing Community of Practice 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 Community of Practice entity structure below is very similar to the Community of Place, the same for all three types, with one exception: Communities of Practice are where Patterns are curated.

  • Main: The Main section--infobox (right) and main column (left)--contains:
    • a few required fields, such as a brief description, parent/sibling/offspring of Community of Practice and page curator(s);
    • optionally, one has the ability to display relevant images, give a full name, and longer description;
    • and, lastly, a summary of key relations are provided here as well.
  • Patterns: The Pattern tab allows for the listing of Patterns--concrete instances or expressions of Patterns--practices, processes, frameworks, tools, capacities, livelihoods and any other elements of transformative action associated to a particular Community of Practice.
  • Narratives: The Narratives tab allows for creation of various types of narrative, such as a bit of self-narrative about the Community of Practice, a relevant happening, and/or, knowledge generate about Patterns curated.
  • Essence: The Essence tab allows for anyone in RKC to comment on what makes a Community of Practice unique along three different dimensions. Over time, this feature can offer deeper insights to what each locality or ecosystem brings to this co-creative space.


Please Note: Community of Practice parent, Patterns, and Narratives are generative displays:

  • Blue links, link to an existing page;
  • Red links, prompt the creation of a new page with the appropriate form and template.

[edit]

Localities in RKC simple entity structures used for the express purpose of geographically locating Persons and Initiatives.

  • Main: The Main section--infobox (right) and main column (left)--contains:
    • a few required fields, such as a brief description, the geographic location and page curator(s);
    • optionally, one has the ability to display relevant images, give a full name, and longer description;
    • and, lastly, a summary of key relations are provided here as well.
