Approaches

we believe that methods should be at the service of people and communities.

This is a list of methodologies that will be constantly updated according to the evolution of our compilation of social technologies.

If you have suggestions for complementary approaches do not hesitate to contact us.

Design Thinking

Set of ideas and insights to address complex problems. Adopted by individuals and organizations, mainly in the business world, as well as in engineering and contemporary design, design thinking has seen its influence grow among several disciplines today, as a way to approach and solve problems.

Theory U

It proposes that the quality of the results that we create in any type of social system depends on the quality of attention, presence and awareness that the participants show. It offers incredible tools that aim to reconnect the individual with himself, with others and with the environment through a powerful system. It also includes the Theater of Social Presence as a way of incorporating the processes of the method.

Sociocracy

It is a methodology that offers a governance system that operates from the bottom up through a circular structure. It is composed of powerful tools for decision making, conflict resolution, election of representatives in organizations and decentralized management. In fact, sociocracy could offer a whole new way of governing a company, school and even a country with a distributed power structure.

Nonviolent Communication

A model that intends to turn the communication process into something more compassionate and humane based on the conscious observation of our habits. It is a powerful conflict resolution and self-knowledge tool, essential in any type of organization that aims to offer a welcoming space for its members.

Systemic Thinking

It is an approach that aims to see the world as a network, as a tangle of complex relationships that adapt according to their interactions. We can say that a system is a set of parts that interact with each other. The root of systemic thinking is the idea that each part of the system influences the whole (which in turn is greater than the individual sum of the parts).

Theory U

It proposes that the quality of the results that we create in any type of social system depends on the quality of attention, presence and awareness that the participants show. It offers incredible tools that aim to reconnect the individual with himself, with others and with the environment through a powerful system. It also includes the Theater of Social Presence as a way of incorporating the processes of the method.

The Reconnecting Work

It is a free set of activities, which has Joanna Macy as a root teacher, and has emerged for over 40 years as a direct response to the social, ecological and economic crises of our time. It seeks to understand and face these challenges with a lucid eye and an open heart, and invites us to reconnect with us, with beings and with the healing power that is born from interdependent life.

Theater of the Oppressed

Based on the assumption that dialogue is the common and healthy dynamic among all human beings, that all human beings desire and are able to dialogue and that, when a dialogue becomes a monologue, oppression begins. The theater then becomes an extraordinary tool for transforming the monologue into dialogue. “While some people do theater,” says Boal, “we are all theater”.

Pedagogy of the Oppressed

Proposed by Paulo Freire in 1968 as the new vision of liberating education. We live in a society where we experience an eternal cycle of oppression. And within this cycle, the oppressed person's greatest dream is to become an oppressor. The pedagogy of the oppressed aims to break this cycle and give the oppressed the option of breaking the oppressive currents of the educational system.

Liberating Structures

Liberating structures introduce small changes in the way we come together, plan, decide and relate to each other. They put the power of innovation, previously reserved only for specialists, in the hands of everyone.

H3Uni

It is an adventure for new ways to co-create a new standard of living that takes into account complexity, interconnection and emergency. H3uni's tools are incredibly simple and powerful and 100% based on collaborative processes. It is possible to develop highly complex processes with a playful approach and focused on visual facilitation.

Biomimicry 3.8

Biomimicry can be a great deal: a mental model, an innovation tool or a science. If we observe the formation of the word, we can understand its meaning more literally: bio means life, and mimesis is imitation. Biomimicry, therefore, is the imitation of life.

GameStorming

It is a compilation of collaborative processes that are presented as games. GameStorming seeks to stimulate people's creative spirit through a playful and fun approach. There are many processes mapped by the method and there is an entire book to be appreciated where it is possible to understand each proposal in great depth.

ProcessWork

By promoting a dialogue between Taoism, quantum physics, shamanism, concepts originating from the worldview of native peoples such as the Aborigines, Jungian psychology and countless other approaches, ProcessWork offers a powerful approach that becomes essential to support collaborative processes and conflict transformation.

Dragon Dreaming

A living systems approach to collaborative project design inspired by Aboriginal culture, chaos and complexity theory, deep ecology and systemic thinking, Dragon Dreaming offers a meta-model that describes any type of Collaborative Design process as a living organism .

Organic Organizations

It is a self-management model inspired by Getting Things done, Sociocracy 3.0, Holacracia, Agile Methodologies and Reinvented Organizations. O2 offers a simplified approach for organizations looking for a self-management model that can be implemented and scaled in a corporate, cooperative, association and other context.
