Workshop: Accelerating the Integral City in VUCA Times
If Integralists nested together in the same city, could we accelerate the emergence of the Integral City? Let’s conduct a little experiment to discern how to amplify our Integral contributions for and with each of the four integral voices of the city: citizens, civil society, business and public institutions. Whatever your Integral work, paid or unpaid, let’s map out how we serve the city and how we view the purpose of the city. We will explore who we need to be to serve the city, the qualities we need to keep and strengthen, or let go. Let’s AQtivate the Integral City, so it serves Gaia and humans well around the planet in our volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous times.
