-Ubatuba is a municipality sitting exactly where the eastern coast of Brazil is crossed by the Tropic of Capricorn. The city has a high record of nature conservation - 86% of its territory is composed of atlantic forest, one of the biggest biodiversities in the world. Despite attracting a number of people sensible to that context, though, ​the political imaginary of the city often regards ​preservation as an obstacle to development.+{{ :​prisma:​captura_de_tela_de_2017-05-10_20-56-33.png?​nolink&​400|}}[[https://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Ubatuba|Ubatuba]] is a municipality sitting exactly where the eastern coast of Brazil is crossed by the [[https://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Tropic_of_Capricorn|Tropic of Capricorn]].

 Prisma has the long-term goal of stressing the relevance of socio-environmental innovation by building local capacity, retaining and attracting talents and creating critical mass for sustainable alternatives to local development. Prisma has the long-term goal of stressing the relevance of socio-environmental innovation by building local capacity, retaining and attracting talents and creating critical mass for sustainable alternatives to local development.

-  * How to learn what we need; 
-  * Basic project language; 
-  * Modes of organisation and work. 
-The first phase will be shaping the syllabus and either producing or selecting relevant contents for these three modules, in brazilian portuguese. All the content produced, as well as selections of playlists of available third-party materials, will be published under a CC-BY-SA license. 
  
-The course will be offered for free to a small test group, possibly six students coming from a partner project on social engagement in local communities. Other possilities for test groups are students or former students from the two technical high schools in Ubatuba, or else selected members ​of the collaborative incubator inc.ubalab.+  * How to learn what(ever) we need; 
 +  * Basic projectish (how to speak the language ​of projects);​ 
 +  * Ways of organising and working.
  
-The courses will simultaneously offer access to online content and discussions,​ and hold periodic face-to-face meetings with the test group, from august to november. Meanwhile, students will develop their own project(s) of socio-environmental innovation. ​They will create and document complementary learning paths relevant to their projects, and publish these paths also under a CC-BY-SA license. Depending on other funding sources of CISA, they will also be hired to transform these learning paths into new course modules. Some examples of possible new modules: permaculture,​ design thinking, circular economy, fundraising,​ web and digital media, event production, project management, free/open hardware, prototyping,​ graphic design (among many others).+We will start by shaping the syllabus and either producing or selecting relevant contents for these three modules, in brazilian portuguese.

-On the other hand, there are pressing challenges. Unlike similar localities, Ubatuba can not become industrialized in the traditional way, due exactly to the predominance of its preserved areas.

-Building ​alternative paths for sustainable inclusive development is urgentbut the absence of proper university makes it even harder.+On the other hand, there are pressing challenges. Unlike similar localities, Ubatuba can not become industrialized in the traditional way, due exactly to the predominance of its preserved areas. In the imaginary of most of its political and higher economic classes, though, preservation equals underdevelopment. The city must find alternative paths. Otherwise, the regulations will be changed. There is no University in Ubatuba, what adds constant drainage of young people along with their skills, talent, creativity and desire for action. Those who stay fall prey to an economy dependent on heavily seasonal mass tourism and construction work.

-The biggest challenge ​we might face would be if talented young people, inventors and innovators from Ubatuba don't get interested in what we have to offer. Becoming part of an international network of like-minded project is already a way to overcome the prejudice people often have against local initiatives. CISA envisions a number of local partners that will not only help making the project known by potential participants,​ but also point to particularly talented individuals,​ creative projects or specific demands that could benefit from its implementation.+The biggest challenge ​CISA might face would be if talented young people, inventors and innovators from Ubatuba don't get interested in what we have to offer.

 Prisma and CISA are being built with a sense of resilience. The recent years in Brazil have reminded us never to trust a single funding source, as budget cuts have hit culture and science even harder than other areas. Prisma and CISA are being built with a sense of resilience.

-The mid-term plan is to structure Prisma as a hybrid of third-sector ​organisation and social business that generates revenue in many ways (seling certified courses, offering face-to-face immersions, creating educational content, developing in-house training and so on) and reinvests all the profit into itself. To reach that point, it will need to rely for now in a range of funding sources - donations, paid writing and speaking, establishing partnerships with organisations,​ possibly crowdfunding and other strategies.+The mid-term plan is to structure Prisma as a hybrid of community ​organisation and social business that generates revenue in many ways (seling certified courses, offering face-to-face immersions, creating educational content, developing in-house training and so on) and reinvests all the profit into itself.
