This two-day course 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 can build on the Traditional, Smart and Resilient City models. It can also be applied to Urban Ecovillages.
- The Integral Map discloses how people develop capacities for living, learning and working together effectively in the city.
- The Meshwork reveals the emergence of the natural patterns of relationships that connect individuals and groups and result in mutual trust and respect in the city.
- The Human Hive proposes the city has 4+1 Voices that generate resourcefulness and energy for city wellbeing.
This course will help you to see the city as a whole system that responds like a resilient Human Hive; meshes Complex Relationships for Smart & Resilient City learning; and Integrates Intentions for vibrant cultures, innovative economies and healthy environments.
