Methodology for community building, focused on peer-to-peer support and mutual aid.
Microsolidarity is a methodology for community building, focused on peer-to-peer support and mutual aid.
It provides a lens for thinking about groups at different scales:
The "dyad"—a relationship between two people, eg. a couple.
The "crew" (sometimes called "pods")—a small group of 3-6 people who support each other in their personal or professional development.
The "congregation"—an organisation, network or community.

The crews are intimate spaces enabling peers to achieve high level of impact at a low coordination cost. The crews can produce an output, such as a project, product, or a company, or focus entirely on peer-support and personal development.
The crews co-develop within the congregation, which allows for effective sharing of resources and maximising opportunities and reach via the extended network. The congregation acts as a dating pool for individuals to meet the right people to launch crews with.
Our intention is to create an island-level congregation and launch multiple crews and projects aimed at making Pico one of the most amazing places to live on Earth 💫.
