‘Fractal Communities’ journey is a unique opportunity for an experiential interchange of knowledge through a systemic thinking methodology and biomimecry practices, for the creation of a strong link between people from around the world, the Nabusímake, Arhuaco´s indigenous community and the biodiversity surrounding them.
This allows and promotes an appreciation and preservation of nature and each other’s culture by enhancing the intrinsic value of ancestral knowledge, nature’s wisdom and the enabling evolution into a cohesive system with strong social tissue.Moreover, it allows for the possibility to generate an innovative and sustainable project for the Nabusímake community’s benefit, which would ease current challenges due to their distinctive practices and their differences with the state/government.

The synesthesia proposed for this journey, can happen based on sprouting processes which follow a systemic thinking methodology:
The community will be instructed into an intensive local biodiversity focused biomimecry methodology in order to harvest the knowledge before the journey begins. This will facilitate the biomimetic design process to solve the challenge chosen by the community in the first workshop.
Context: Who are you, what can you offer and what are you good for?
Recognition of the territory, cultures and community´s challenges.
Social learning and its link to innovation.
Synthesis team: prototype, test and reflect. Create link to next step.
