What is Microsolidarity?

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:

  1. The "dyad"β€”a relationship between two people, eg. a couple.

  2. The "crew" (sometimes called "pods")β€”a small group of 3-6 people who support each other in their personal or professional development.

  3. The "congregation"β€”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 πŸ’«.
