This 3-day course online (each daily session is 90 – 120 minutes) introduces “practitioners” to just the basics of the Integral City model. You will learn the framework of practices, tools and maps that reveal the common patterns that impact the lives of individuals, organizations and communities within your city. This short course explores three powerful images animating Integral City systems – the integral map, the meshwork and the human hive. You will learn from your own situations and each other how the toolkit guides you beyond models for Urban Ecovillages and Traditional, Smart and Resilient Cities.
In the course, we introduce participants to the 4+1 Voices of the Integral City (Business, Local Government, Civil Society, and Citizens, plus actors from other regional cities). We explore the basic toolbox of the Integral City. The toolkit contains core teachings from the Integral City Book series. We explain the 5 sets of Intelligences that all cities need for coping with local challenges like citizen engagement or global challenges like climate change responses. We offer 5 maps of the city that can be used to align all the scales of interaction from individual expression to neighbourhood meetings to city-wide sustainability. And we use the biomimicry of the beehive to reveal how the 4+1 Voices of the Human Hive can work together for setting priorities and achieving prosperity.
During the training, we will draw upon the research and experience of the Integral City Communities of Practise (in Canada, USA, Netherlands, Spain, Russia, Finland, Mexico, Australia). We will respond to participant questions, curiosities, and learning objectives.
