Presentation: Stories of Integral Politics and Social Justice
We know what is happening – humanity is at a precipice of a changing environment that challenges our stories of how we are human and our social, economic, cultural, political and legal systems. Interconnected individuals and societies across the globe need to create comprehensive holistic solutions, with a shared vision. To do that, in our communities of practice and knowledge exchange, notions of equality, justice and human development from an integral perspective need to be adequately integrated so that harmful tropes are not promulgated. This discussion will consider the contributions of an integral politics approach, considering the resistance towards social justice from numerous corners, including the Intellectual Dark Web, as well as the integral-inspired responses thus far and what is needed to fully integrate the concepts at this critical time in the human story.
