- This is an online refresher series for “practitioners, catalysts and meshworkers” to practise their understanding and application of Integral City frameworks to the Human Hive.
- This Zoom Co-Laboratory allows graduates of prior courses (or equivalent experience) to work together to build on learnings from the Integral City Beyond Smart and Beyond Resilient
- We will look at the city through the lenses of its 12 Intelligences, 4+1 voices of the city (Citizens, Civil Society, City/Institutional Managers, Business/Innovators (and other cities) and the Master Code of Care.
- We will share challenges and practise designing engagements for inquiry, action and impact.
This Zoom Co-Lab will support practitioners who work with individual organizations and catalysts who build bridges between organizations, to explore how to engage with the city as a whole.
Participants can bring inquiries related to:
- questions that arise from daily exchanges in their cities;
- headlines that trend in the news;
- values conflicts emanating from the city Voices;
- small case studies.
We will discuss approaches for framing issues and solving problems. We will look for patterns and themes (such as global/local-scale challenges such as climate adaptation, energy shifts, water management, food security, and cultural evolution).
In these refreshers we will apply frameworks, tools, processes and maps. As a multi-disciplinary team, we will learn from each other and co-create a Co-Lab of continuous learning. We will use the Integral City 12 Intelligences Discovery Tool to evaluate our progress.
In each Zoom refresher series of 3 we will optimize the dates and times to suit the group. This short course welcomes the intelligences from our own 4 Voices:
- Business Leaders seeking opportunities for their businesses that serve a higher purpose.
- Civil Society (Third Sector) leaders seeking more inspiring ways to communicate the voices of the marginalized and the spirit of the community.
- Local Government leaders with responsibilities across a range of services, who want to align and collaborate for effective outcomes.
- Engaged Citizens, who are ready and willing to contribute to the wellbeing of their city.
Our time together will draw upon the research of the facilitators and the Integral City Communities of Practise (in Canada, USA, Netherlands, Spain, Russia, Mexico, South Africa, Germany) while integrating the experiences of each other.
Beth changes the “energetics” of a room and she does so by creating catalytic conversations that count. She’s always got a creative alternative ready and savvy solution handy. Beth has a unique talent for synthesizing information in a way that is meaningful to the hearts and minds of everyone in the room, be that one person or a group. I highly recommend Beth as a “meshworker” of organizations and communities and as a compassionate and caring collaborator.Dr. Dan MacKinnon, Organizational Psychologist , Beyond Complexity co-lab
