Community of Practice
From WikiPedia (:D) -> "A community of practice (CoP) is, according to cognitive anthropologists Jean Lave and Etienne Wenger, a group of people who share an interest, a craft, and/or a profession. The group can evolve naturally because of the members' common interest in a particular domain or area, or it can be created specifically with the goal of gaining knowledge related to their field. It is through the process of sharing information and experiences with the group that the members learn from each other, and have an opportunity to develop themselves personally and professionally (Lave & Wenger 1991).

An excellent example of the 'show by doing' school of thought - the specific effectiveness of the "Green Champions", the example is good: people self-organize to unified actions toward their specific goals. 

 

A Community of Practice needs to be, foremost, practicing - otherwise it's pure academics to discuss "what might be done, if only".
