What's this all about?
This website contains the documentation of microsolidarity work in Pico Island, a first step towards growing a network of regenerative communities in the Azores.


The intention of this documentation is to work in public and document our progress as it happens. Hopefully it will help to clarify what's going on, inspire others and help us get meaningful feedback to improve our community work.


This documentation is maintained (with Love) by Michal Korzonek, and it's my personal perspective on what is happening in Pico, shaped through my community work in the island. With that in mind here's an important disclaimer:
This documentation is not the only perspective on what's happening in Pico, and I'm not perfect, nor am I trying to be.
