We are weaving a community in Pico Island by practicing microsolidarity.
Microsolidarity is a community building practice focused on creating structures for belonging and supporting people into meaningful work.
Belonging is a superpower: we’re more courageous & creative when we "find our people".
In Pico, a fortnightly sharing circle evolved into bi-annual Gatherings, from where numerous projects are constantly emerging. Some of them manifest life-long dreams of their co-creators, others fail due to conflict or lack of energy. That's okay - we are learning by doing.
Finding our people, a sense of belonging, and co-creating magic, comes along with practicing being together in groups of different sizes, regularly and intentionally.
Here's the story of making it happen in a tiny island, not too far from one of the hypothetical locations of the Atlantis.
Our long term vision is to co-create Azores Regenerative Network, connecting regenerative projects, communities and practitioners in the archipelago. Plus a fleet of sailboats crossing in between the islands and the Mainland.
The intention of this documentation is to learn by doing and work in public. We're documenting our progress as it happens, with the intention to clarify what is happening, inspire other community weavers, and attract meaningful feedback.
We also have an intention of creating a magnetic pull bringing more Microsolidarity practitioners into the archipelago.
