The civil society players co-create significant knowledge however this often remains tacit and un(der)- utilized. These valuable assets can be mobilized through ‘extended’ community-based or participatory action research projects facilitating their identification and sharing. These innovative methods enable to (re-)generate mutual trust among community members and researchers and amplify their motivation to cooperate. Their extension can enable to carry out pilot projects of establishing and operating platform(s) facilitating self-organizing knowledge sharing among (members of) different civil society organizations - the paper assumes. These pilots can rely on sound and empirically founded methodological background by capitalizing on previous research on the civil society organizations’ transformational capacity (Veress, 2016) and capability to contribute to transformative social innovation (Transit, 2017). The pilot(s) on platforms enabling knowledge sharing can contribute to enhance knowledge creation and management in civil society players. Such improved mobilization of un(der-)utilized knowledge assets of the civil society can catalyse social innovations and their aggregation into broader societal changes. Through these feed backing tendencies the civil society players can affect also the knowledge (driven) societies’ emergence patterns – the paper recalls.
