Dive Deep and Dream Big: codesigning new transformative pathways through a social learning process

Pedro Macedo

The ‘Dive Deep & Dream Big’ process started in 2019 and was set as a collaborative inquiry to support break-through change at the municipal scale. Individuals and organizations working in different contexts got together to share knowledge and develop new pathways leading to translocal empowerment.

Based on agreements, a new narrative of change is expected to consolidate, in the border of inner and outer transition, integrating self-care, community care and global care, with cultural change as a leverage point. By balancing power and addressing privilege, it would be possible to curate places of inclusion and connection that take advantage of edges, safe zones for expression, bringing in memories from the elders and longings for the desired futures.

A proposal for a structured collaborative intervention is presented in this report, translating the narrative of change into action, hopefully capable of catalysing and supporting ambitious and inclusive systemic change at the municipal scale. The intervention is centred around renewal and connects polarities, integrates head, heart, and hands, and it is expected to allow us to move from domination to imagination.
