There are elements of this issue to be very deliberate about if we want beneficial, regenerative outcomes. For example, understanding the difference between community (of learning and action) and network and then "desiging from patterns to details" (as we say in permaculture) accordingly: https://www.wenger-trayner.com/communities-versus-networks/

A pattern I call "succession of collaboration": https://medium.com/org-hacking/cooperation-coordination-collaboration-keast-66614a7ddf8a

Locus of control comes to mind... [Locus of control is the degree to which people believe that they, as opposed to external forces (beyond their influence), have control over the outcome of events in their lives. -- from Wikipedia]

I'm probably in surrender / action quadrant with my need and stance of "finding refuge in meaningful action" :-)

By the way, have you seen Venn's diagram in TED Talk released couple of months ago? https://www.ted.com/talks/ayana_elizabeth_johnson_how_to_find_joy_in_climate_action

"...we can't all just talk about it. We need doers..."

"...the sexiest word in the English language: implementation."
