Integral City 2.0 Operating System Inquiry

September, 2012

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
The Integral City 2.0 Online Conference gathered 60 visionary thought leaders, designers and practitioners, with 600 participants from 6 continents, to inquire into how to design a new operating system for the city. The 12-day Conference allowed exploration of each of the 12 intelligences from the book, Integral City: Evolutionary Intelligences for the Human Hive, and their contributions to city vitality. The Conference was designed to be co-generative and appreciative, with an action research focus, collecting data through guided interviews aligned with each of the 12 intelligences. Over 70 hours of recorded interviews and dialogue were generated (audio podcasts and webinars), and subsequently transcribed into over 500 pages of transcripts. 660 thought leaders, designers, practitioners and participants gathered synchronously and asynchronously in a spirit of radical optimism, an essential evolutionary aspect of life. The four voices of the Integral City city-zens (UL)1, civil society (LL), government/agency (UR), and business/organization (LR) confirmed that a new operating system for the city is needed because cities face global crises related to water, food, energy, finance and climate change. The four Integral City voices see that this operating system resides within each of us and between us. Moreover, the new operating system is epitomized by, and optimized with, the Master Code: take care of self, take care of others, take care of this place/planet. In exploring the Master Code, we found that principles of living systems resonate with the intelligences and principles of Integral City. This was independently confirmed by 5 visionaries using different lenses of human systems: groups, cities, sustainable design, investment and organizations. Our data shows that our ecological transactions, cultural translations, structural transformations and planetary evolution are emerging the early stages of a collective consciousness. The city is co-creating us and we are co-creating it. The city is alive. The new operating system for cities embraces a transdisciplinary design with strategies that embrace all four Integral quadrants: UL Intentional, LL Cultural, UR Behavioral, and LR Structural. It embraces a desire to act as a planet of cities embedding living system, resilience and life cycle strategies. The Integral intelligence of the new operating system allows cities to be Gaias reflective organs, with human city-zens as the cells in that organ, their wellbeing dependent on their relationships with each other and the planet. The logic processers of the new operating system connect the dots by aligning purpose, priorities, people and planet with the natural flow of information, energy and matter. Finally the power source for the new operating system is an evolutionary manifestation of the Master Code, with care and compassion as core, renewing energy. It is not enough to ask what can the city do for us? It is time to ask what can we do for the city? City-centric individuals and organizations with vested city interests (governments/agencies, business, civil society) must play catalytic roles - to co-generate inquiry, innovate learning and strengthen city relationships as the true currency for evolving city capacity and spirit.

INTRODUCTION

Holons, Week 1: Planet of Cities by Erin Stewart Elliott

I felt inspired to create an event for people worldwide who have, like me, dreamed about how people can live together in more conscious and sustainable ways. Humans have the intelligence(s) to co-create a life-giving relationship with our planet, Gaia. It is time for our species to wake up, grow up and take responsibility for the future of our shared human hive. In this gathering, lets build our dreams and make them real together. Conference Producer, Dr. Marilyn Hamilton

Conference co-designers hold a radically optimistic vision of our collective future. We gathered leaders and city-zens from around the world to dream, build and make real the future we want for our cities. In creating this online Conference, we made a bold commitment to co-create a bright future for the entire human hive. We know that creating the necessary global solutions to address the challenges we face will require the perspectives, expertise and energy of many people. We believe that passionate, informed people can create a massive positive shift. By putting our heads and hearts together with experts in diverse disciplines, we envisioned and captured the most innovative ideas and best practices to create a sustainable, thriving planetary future. Over 60 thought leaders, designers and leading-edge practitioners from various industries, city sectors and academic disciplines from 6 of the worlds continents, started a conversation about our planet of cities. People from more than 75 cities have entered a co-generative exchange about what it will take for us to serve our cities well so they can serve us well.

INQUIRY PROCESS

Integral Theory, Week 2: Gaias Reflective Organ by Erin Stewart Elliott

Discovery: The Research Question


The genesis of the Conference was curiosity about a key question: what is the future of the human hive? A second question became the platform to explore this first question: how can we design a new operating system for the city? To explore a new operating system for the city, we made assumptions, based on the book, Integral City: Evolutionary Intelligences for the Human Hive, about the city as an intelligent, natural, complex, human system. We subsequently designed to engage people, priorities and purpose from a planet-centric perspective around these three principles: 1. Cities as human hives are the most relevant boundaries and crucibles for change in human systems at a planetary scale 2. We need a common lens and language from which to communicate and collaborate about the human hive 3. The city lens itself is under construction, and we need to learn how to think differently, as a human hive

Platform for Participation: Design for Engagement


The Conference was delivered on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of each week from September 4 to 27, 2012. Each week of the Conference focused on a key element for a new operating system for the city (Figure 1): Week 1: Planet of Cities @ the Motherboard Week 2: Gaias Reflective Organ: Integral Intelligence Inside Week 3: Aligning Strategies to Prosper: Logic Processors Connecting All the Dots Week 4: Amplifying Intelligence: Evolutionary Power Pak

Figure 1: Weekly design elements of the Conference

Each of the 12 Conference days focused on one of the Integral City intelligences with the guidance of three principles associated with each intelligence (Figure 2). These were explored by thought leaders, designers and practitioners: Thought leaders have an area of pracademic expertise that informs a key city intelligence; yet they are (usually) not thought leaders about the city as currently imagined Designers are pattern and meaning makers experimenting with manifesting contexts, capacities, strategies and energies that contributes to city operational wellbeing Practitioners are praxis leaders, continuously learning as they implement processes for sustainable practices, resilient strategies, community engagement, decision making, navigating intentions and evaluating outcomes

Figure 2: Conference Daily Explorations

Action research was designed into the Conference, where the Conference became a cocreated, and documented, learning experience that enabled inclusive participation, open inquiry, emergent discoveries, and integrated interpretation. Each week of the Conference focused on core aspects of action research: think, plan, act, and reflect. Each week involved the exploration of three intelligences, one intelligence per day. Each day involved a series of guided interviews derived from the set of 3 principles associated with each Integral City intelligence. (Appendix A: The Proceedings summarizes each intelligence, core interview questions based on the principles, the focus questions for each session, the speakers and links to transcripts.) The Conference, as a 4-week research process, integrated action research (think, plan, act and reflect) with the audience and the production team to inquire about a new operating system for the city. Our audience consisted of sponsors/partners (organizations who have a vested interest in the success of the city), knowledge workers (thought leaders, designers and practitioners), and city-zens (people of the city who seek quality of life (Figure 3)). Consistent with action research, our thinkers were engaged as thought leaders, planners were engaged as designers, actors were engaged as practitioners, and reflectors were engaged as Conference harvesters, hosts and producers. At the same time all the roles were potentially available and practiced by all participants. A complete list of these players can be found in Appendix B.

Figure 3: Conference Audiences

Design intentions for the Conference enabled: Strategic access to audiences (city-zens, knowledge workers, sponsors-partners) who enact Integral City intelligences Access to research on how to engage, align, mesh, enable, renew, facilitate, activate, partner and collaborate for win-win-win city prosperity Opportunities to listen to, speak with and influence city stakeholders Opportunities to develop and accelerate city leadership Co-creation of designs, policies and practices for city environments, integrations, connections, energy, change, hive mind, strategies, spirit and evolutionary energy

Effectively, the Conference design reflected a circular economy of the human hive (Figure 4): gathering pollen from the thought leaders, who research and write about the city; generating honey from designers and policy makers who are creating processes and structures that enable the city to be a life-giving system of systems; harvesting the energy from practitioners who are practicing new ways of living together for city wellbeing; and regenerating the hive through cocreating purpose, priorities, people and prosperity.

Delivery: A Production Platform


The Conference platform was an online learning environment that allowed synchronous and asynchronous participation of learners. This choice allowed the world to gather - without onerous travel expenses, without the generation of greenhouse gas emissions and, most importantly, with the ability for speakers and the audience to virtually engage. A significant technological platform, and a production team, enabled this event. Each of the four weeks aimed to produce a technological container, a wiki of the human hive, as a knowledge base to hold Conference findings (Figure 4). While the technological base to fully support this work on an ongoing basis has yet to emerge, a vast array of technology platforms supported the event itself (Appendix C). A sampling of the technology that served the Conference includes: Organizing infrastructure for the Production Team (Basecamp) Communications infrastructure to confirm, update and advise speakers (Microsoft Word, Google Drive and Gmail) Marketing infrastructure for the website, email blasts, registration and payment system (Kajabi, iContact, PayPal) Live interactive infrastructure for the interviews, question and answer exchanges with the audience, and break-out sessions for participants to engage with each other and speakers (Maestro Conference)

Harvest infrastructure to edit the interviews for placement on the website, daily and weekly summaries of the Integral City Intelligences and asynchronous discussion areas, and transcripts of every interview (Audacity, Kajabi, Microsoft Word)

Over 50 volunteers from across the planet offered their leadership and resourcefulness to make the Conference a success. They collaborated across disciplines, cultures, time zones and life conditions. Two teams organized and delivered the Conference: the Core Team and the Volunteer Team. The Core Team consisted of the following key roles: production, marketing, operations, sponsorship, program design, interviewing, Maestro hosting, audio recording, harvesting, speaker support, member & website support, editing and volunteer coordination. The Volunteer Team supplied a series of supporting roles: speaker support, member support, website and harvest support, interview transcribers and translators. A full list of volunteers is found in Appendix D. The Conferences success is attributed to our commitment to work well together and live the Master Code: look after self, look after others and to look after this place / planet (see Findings for details). Our success drew on our individual and collective intelligences, commitment to an evolutionary purpose, a sense of adventure and good humor.

Deliverables, Data, Proceedings, Harvests


Thought leaders, designers and practitioners dove into each of the 12 evolutionary intelligences explored in the book, Integral City: Evolutionary Intelligences for the Human Hive. The result is 36 guided interviews that were recorded over the course of the Conference three for each of the twelve intelligences plus a set of 12 daily harvests and 4 weekly images. Each session was designed around a set of questions that allowed interviewees to explore the intelligence and the three principles associated with that intelligence. The specific questions used, based on the principles supporting each intelligence, can be found in Appendix A. The data produced live, for each interview, has been recorded and posted on the Conference website as downloadable mp3 files for Conference members. These mp3 files have been transcribed by volunteers and edited by professional editors; they are available for members as downloadable files for their personal learning or to contribute to research. Please see Appendix A for links to 36 transcriptions and harvests. As the Conference was unfolding live, in addition to the raw data in the interviews, our Harvest Captain, created a daily summary in the form of a narrative or a poem exploring the essence of the days intelligence. Each piece was shared immediately with Conference participants, allowing participants and speakers to get a sense of what happened each day and to support a collective sense of meaning. It also served as a model for participants own exploration of the meaning they make of each intelligence. A further model was provided each week by our graphic artist, who painted the meaning of each week. Her images now serve to illustrate these proceedings. (See Appendix A-13 for the link to the daily and weekly harvests.) This resulted in speaker and participant posts in the websites discussion areas relating to the interviews and the intelligences: articles, photos, slideshows, poems, essays, music, discussion. The data gathered has been further analyzed and synthesized to generate the findings, recommendations and conclusions noted in the following pages.

PROVOCATIVE FINDINGS

Centralized Coordination, Week 3: Aligning Strategies to Prosper by Erin Stewart Elliott

The Conference was full of discoveries: in the moment, among cross-section connections within and between participants/speakers/interviewees, and from analysis of the session transcripts of and daily and weekly harvests. Core findings that provoke and promise are outlined below.

The Challenges Cities Face


Cities face five big crises that face the world: water, food, energy, finance, climate change. The simplest explanation for these crises, is a separation between our interior and exterior worlds. Integral City thinking and doing can help. The four integral maps offer ways for us to explore and create habitats that will allow for the prosperity of all in the human hive. Central to this is

the realization that the challenges and crises we face are purposeful: in the face of crisis, as human beings we become what we need to become to overcome the crisis, with radical optimism.

Radical Optimism
The source of our radical optimism lies in our distinct ability to use logic, to seek evidence and analyze our world. It lies in our ability to think into the future, discerning patterns and trends. We also exercise moral intelligence, recognizing right and wrong. Last, we have compassion; we endeavor to take care of self, other and place, the Integral City Master Code. Our choices are radically full of optimism and meaning when we are inspired by our kindness, humor and joy. Radical optimism was reiterated by many visionaries as a compelling disposition of Life.

City Intelligences
Most participants were unfamiliar with the intelligences or how or why to use them. The Integral City model and the Conference itself demanded a new type of engagement between individual and collective intelligences that has not yet found expression in the ecology of the city. The identification and application of the lenses of intelligence demands a shift in perspective (how do I see city intelligences in me, in others, in organizations, in the city as a whole?); and a shift in worldview (how does a city-centric perspective change my view of the world). (See Appendix A for definitions of city intelligences.) This work is opening a new view of the city that goes well beyond understanding the city has an internal focus, to the city having a purpose on a planet of cities.

Principles of Living Systems


Many speakers spoke of principles that resonate with the 12 Intelligences of the Integral City (Appendix A). Five sets of principles emerged over the course of the Conference. The first set of principles surfaced in Week 1: A Planet of Cities. We heard from Elisabet Sahtouris about her 15 principles of living systems and the application of these principles that allow us to celebrate crisis because that is the way that nature triggers radical creativity. She also reminded us that life rewards symbiotic cooperation for the very practical reason that it takes less energy to be friendly than to wage war. Three further sets of principles emerged in Week 2: Gaias Reflective Organ. Mark DeKay articulated the principles of sustainable design and Alex Van Oost described their application in cities using the Almere Principles. From an organizational perspective we heard from Brian Robertson on the principles of Holacratic organization. The fifth set of principles emerged in Week 3: Aligning Strategies to Prosper with Hazel Henderson and the life giving principles for investment that she developed with Biomimicry author, Janine Benyus. We compared these five sets of principles to the Integral City intelligences (see Appendix E), revealing the growing perception that the intelligences are based on contexting, capacity

building, life-giving strategies and evolution. Not surprisingly, different versions of the Master Code, articulated in Week 4: Amplifying Intelligences, could be identified in three of the above sets of principles.

A New Operating System for Cities


A new operating system for a planet of cities is alive to cycles of radical optimism in a living, conscious universe that replenishes us every second. The new operating system for the city is within each of us and between each of us. It is profoundly conservative with what works well and it is profoundly experimental with what does not work. It is powered by the Master Code.

The City is Co-Creating Us


Four key words and concepts define our relationship with cities: transaction, translation, transformation and transduction. We are learning to be clear about our transaction with the planet, our ecological footprint, for example. We are beginning to understand that life is adaptive and fully within us. We are learning to translate effectively from, between and into different cultures, values, levels of worldview. In addition, our cities transform along with us. What we build changes us, and our consciousness changes what we choose to build over time as well. Last, our ego-and ethno-centered view of the world is being transduced to a planetcentric view. Our collective consciousness is re-wiring us for new kinds of connections.

The Master Code: Take Care of Self, Others, Place/Planet


The three principles of the Master Code are alive and well in the world and played a key role in the Conferences success. They guided us to live the Master Code itself: 1. Expect the unexpected. We found that the practice of radical humility of not knowing what each interview would bring enabled emergence. 2. Pay attention to the rules. We noticed that the new currency in the world is relationships, particularly within and between different worldviews or levels of consciousness. 3. Enable emergence and resilience. We observed a new narrative of the citys emerging story as a living system. It offered new connections that align purpose, practices, principles and perspectives. Over the course of the Conference, we realized that operationalizing the Master Code means choosing behavior that is appreciative and focused on community. Appreciative inquiry cogenerated resourceful processes to discover, dream, design and deliver. Our community response-ability invited capacity-building opportunities to educate, engage, enact and evaluate. The many voices in the Conference converged around the intelligences that contribute to the creation of a new operating system for our cities. The participants identified the Integral City voice they most identified with: city-zens, civil society, city government/institutions and business. The DNA of our Master Code intersects with these voices to emerge intelligences in the WE space of the voices. This is revealed Table 1 below.

City-zens

Outer Intelligence Practitioners gave us instructions for cleansing, connecting, and crowning our personal energies for collective clarity.

Integral Intelligence Designers showed us how leaders improve their effectiveness with the WE of groups, teams and organizations by working on, with and as the system. Cultural Intelligence We heard how civil society can catalyze and support neighborhoods to build together art-based gathering places.

Ecosphere Intelligence Practitioners explained how the citys regional health improves when universities, business, citizens and city work together for common purpose of place. Living Intelligence Bankrupt cities and cities under siege shared how they discover new capacities when Citizen Observatories convene the collective WE for city change. Navigating Intelligence Investment fund managers using principles based on living systems open up whole new standards for economies, environments, social and cultural pillars of sustainability and resilience at all scales from public, to private, city, nation, and globe. Emergence Intelligence When a major bank redefines its service to the city in terms of catalyzing generative relationships, the power of place is released, so that the intractable problems related to water, food, energy, climate and finance are approached with full human consciousness and greatest cultural values.

Civil Society

Inner Intelligence We discovered with city faith leaders that they need to invite citizens to see themselves spiritually empowered at the scale of the city. Structural Intelligence I designers and architects can make their WE dreams for new city governance real by challenging the status quo with experiments in eco-villages & energy production that engage the many Is in a wave of WE intention.

Government

Meshworking Intelligence When villages in the developing world discover how they can mesh themselves and message their story about how climate change affects them, neighbors learn how to engage with each other and local governments also national, regional and global institutions.

Business

Evolutionary Intelligence Leaders explained how they have the power to transact, translate, transform and transduce the entire supply chain of business interests and economies.

Inquiry Intelligence Appreciative Inquiry unlocks the energy of stakeholders, who: discover they have wisdom to take on the challenge of a new city operating system, to dream new possibilities, to design ways to change their cities and to deliver new decision-making processes that connect private and public sectors with all city voices.

Integral Strategies for Designing the New Operating System


In seeking to design a new operating system, we need to consider that we are heading out on an expedition for evolutionary purposes. We need to be willing to be diverse and transdisciplinary, flexible and adaptable, travel with open hearts and minds and spirits, and share principles to guide us on our journey. Together we need to be master designers who find ways to balance the necessary structure to support our expeditions as well as create the conditions for self-organizing. This minimum requisite order of complexity for an Integral City operating system must allow people to show up (in all quadrants), grow up (through all levels of complexity) and take responsibility (including all the necessary perspectives to gain a whole view of the city). The four quadrants include realities that are core to any human system intentional, cultural, behavioral and structural (as set out below). The integral design also embraces four levels of complexity represented by traditional, modern, post-modern and integral worldviews. And integral methodological design aligns the many partial contributions into a whole ecology of the city. Below are the strategies that will enable the necessary design (organized in the four Integral City quadrants as set out in Map 1 of Appendix F).

Intentional Strategies
With collective purpose the borders of individual ego soften, allowing new connections and synergies to emerge. Our hive minds bring us together, in ever- increasing quantities, that create problems but offer us new capacities to resolve them. We naturally do this as part of Earth's natural systems. This is a piece of the new cultural narrative. Our hive minds need inquiry for planetary survival. We are emerging a collective intelligence where results are much more than what any person or perspective could accomplish alone. Being intentional in our relationship with cities requires choosing inquiry over answers. While this is not automatic, inquiry itself will help us figure this out. This requires us to grow up and develop our capacity to be response-able, to positively face the wicked problems and see the potentials for new approaches. Our inner beings are inviting the co-creation of places where the whole person emerges: body, mind, soul and spirit. A new operating system that intentionally inquires will help people see who they have been, where they are now and who they can become. It will help them find their place in the collective context, to find their peace/piece. The evolutionary spirit will flow through them.

Cultural Strategies
Finding and sharing radical optimism unifies and makes whole the scale of the city. We are seeking a learning commons where the conversations that matter reveal all of us to ourselves and each other. A new story, with the seeds for a new operating system for cities, is a new cultural narrative that will enable us to connect with what matters and to design what works with memetic competence. Meshworking is at the heart of this strategy, allowing us to see self and

14

whole, discovering our power in our collective vulnerable strength. Cultural strategies that integrate all we know, pertaining to a specific purpose, are eminently practical and achievable, even with diverse values and worldviews.

Behavioral Strategies
We are growing new senses that enable us to articulate a new "why" for our very being in the universe. Our inner and outer work scale up to become Gaias inner and outer work as we grow our antennae to be/do/evolve her reflective organ. We are now seeing the city we havent seen. We hear the city we havent heard. We are now sensing that we are the Universe in miniature. Our behavior is the citys behavior, the planets behavior, the Universes behavior. Our stories grow themselves.

Structural Strategies
Structure is both naturally-occurring in our environment (the habitat we are given) as well as the naturally-occurring structures we construct (the habitat we make). What we build tells part of the citys story; our structures both conceal and reveal our relationships with nature. We need to create habitats where we support each other and struggle with each other to grow up, wake up, hone up and clean up. We need to design for flow. The very design process we use to create habitats that serve us well, needs to be explored. Our work at this time involves cultivating relationships between generations to draw on their motivations and gifts. We see, in this context, that design principles that enable city structures to work well, consider the following: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. A city's well-being depends on its relationship with its ecological context A city has blurry boundaries A city self-organizes City systems are interwoven, interconnected and non-linear Knowledge in the city is multi-scalar, from the individual to the species Knowledge in the city comes from multiple perspectives

Navigating Intelligence arises when the community builds the indicator framework that provides life-giving feedback. Navigating intelligence is the connection between a community and what it builds, and the community itself needs to choose to monitor and disclose what matters. Each city, and each people, have to find their own way. It is essential that each community explore patterns themselves, figure out what matters themselves and measure what matters most to them. The numbers and the stories in our cities are at the heart of Navigating Intelligence. When effectively looping between what we build and what we want from what we build, the result is city infrastructure, or playground equipment, that will be used. To get the result we want, we have to play together.

PRACTICAL RECOMMENDATIONS

Emerging Systems, Week 4:Amplifying Intelligence by Erin Stewart Elliott

Practices for the new operating system arise as recommendations for the Integral City 2.0 in three categories: the expanding city-centric audience, Conference sponsors and partners and future collaborators.

Practices for City-Centric Audiences


An expanding representation of the human population is seeking to serve the city. This is taking place as peoples everywhere see the necessity to ensure both the survival and evolution of the human species. It is not enough to ask what the city can do for us; it is time to ask what we can do for the city. Our work appears to be the creation of a new operating system for the city. This relies on our abilities to: 1. Act as a wise planet of cities: a. View cities as living systems on a planet of cities b. Amplify our resilience and drive innovation c. Design for the life cycles of and within the city, its inhabitants, and its eco-region d. Determine ways to shore up our resilience amidst shifting factors 2. Endow Gaias reflective organ with relationships: a. Make relationships the prime currency for the Integral City b. Identify ways to support and sustain the well-being of cities c. Explore the value of individual leadership, cultural storytelling, and developmental infrastructure d. Develop capacities for integrity and integral leadership

3. Connect all the dots: a. Weave individual inquiry, meta-wisdom, and hierarchical systems b. Carve a path beyond barriers and co-create a natural flow of resources c. Meshwork to align various partners to achieve a common purpose d. Monitor the health of our cities - and how to make them even more effective 4. Amplify our evolutionary power source: a. Use the Master Code to create a more sustainable, thriving future b. Monitor and manage our personal energy and well-being c. Explore learning systems that promote individual, cultural, and holistic contribution d. Use skilful means to care for self, others, and place/planet

Propositions for Sponsors & Partners


Our primary recommendation for sponsors and partners is to use Integral City curriculum design to develop your markets, relationships and conferencing capacities. The following actions will establish strategic market relationships while improving your collective relationship with cities: 1. Position & platform your organization as a vital city asset: a. Integrate your story into the citys story when you are speakers and/or participants; situate your organizations values in the values of the city b. Position your organization as a wise leader/elder for decision making and resource allocation who serves city and planet by actively participating in interview dialogues and online comments c. Commit to contribute and lead research, planning and management in the city d. Expand your organizations (nascent) role in contributing to prosperity by making cities prosperous for all life systems e. Expand markets & reduce expenses by using online conferencing to connect your purpose and messages to people, priorities, place and planet Access audience & market through values-based relationship development: a. Access diverse environmentally aware and/or cultural creative audiences with clear messaging about your organizations contributions to the Conference purpose b. Position your organization positively in the flex and flow structures of the city by relating directly to Conference speakers and participants who are aligned with your values c. Position your organization as a leader in the creation of integrated vital signs monitors that show the health of the city and eco-region, by engaging the younger generations as valued partners, clients and commentators Amplify & design your unique capacity to co-generate innovation: a. Amplify the citys unique value contribution locally and globally by sponsoring local projects that are integrated with global research b. Design your organizations systems, products and services to contribute to city and planet health by integrating principles and practices learned in the Conference c.

Protocols for Future Collaborators


We recognize that the contribution of the Integral City 2.0 Conference to designing a new city operating system is just beginning. As future collaborators join in this work, we recommend enacting the following protocols to support the evolutionary relationship between the human species and our city habitats: 1. Design and/or build integrated delivery platforms for ongoing learning: a. Support the creation of a learning platform that upgrades the integration of technology and social environments in online conferencing b. Create a platform that invites participation of a broader range of people 2. Create habitats for change: a. Co-create and nurture conditions for personal change and transformation with supportive environments for personal choices that engage glocal challenges b. Create conditions for adults to continuously change, evolve and affirm life c. Create a learning community of adults who have chosen to evolutionarily be always becoming so that we can support and learn from each other 3. Co-create conditions for collective intelligence: a. Sense the collective intelligence field of cities as living systems at the early stages of gestation b. Live the Master Code (look after self, other, place) as a planet of cities c. Enact inquiry in the morphogenetic field, the collective expression of not simply action inquiry, but enaction inquiry 4. Localize Integral City leadership roots: a. Support the mapping of the planets social network of Integral City-zens b. Co-create structures to support local leadership in cities 5. Globalize Integral City impact: a. Ignite a mass amplification of collective intelligence and wisdom in the cities of the planet through your networks b. Support the power of the Integral City community to shift humanity to a higher level of consciousness than the one that led us to today's multiple crises c. Explore and support the creation of the social spaces for the Integral City community: community of interest, community of practice, or Commons 6. Amplify spiritual dimension: a. Support the integral development of the spiritual dimension in cities

PROACTIVE CONCLUSIONS
An Integral City 2.0 Operating System confirms the principles set out on page 3, and reveals that the following vision and design operate at its core: 1. Planet & City-Centricity: a. Healthy cities operate with respect that they are members of a planet of cities b. Operating system building blocks address global challenges through collective responsibility for commons resources (natural, language, internet); they align and re-purpose transactions, translations and transformations mediated by regulation and monetization 2. Life-Giving DNA: a. The Master Code is the core DNA of the new operating system for the city: take care of self, others, place/planet b. Radical optimism is a natural energizing survival strategy of living systems c. The 12 Integral City intelligences provide a framework for sharing a principlebased narrative about the city 3. Integration and Principles: a. Life-giving principles are the root of operating system practices, praxis and protocols b. The four voices of the city: city-zens, civil Society, government/agency, business/organization correlate to required city roles and expressions through thought leadership, design innovation and co-generative practice c. Relationships are the most valuable currency of the city; stories are their primary distribution channels 4. Practices and Protocols: a. Retelling stories is a necessary life-giving, recursive feedback loop that supports our sense of wholeness, coherence, integration and orientation of the city with the planet b. The values of the individual catalyze innovation and creativity and the values of the collective embrace human diversity in its many capacities; a new operating system subsumes both into a new value system of collective intelligence which recalibrates both hyper-individuality and hyper-collectivism c. Empowering WE to a new level of engagement, design and governance in one city opens the field of collective intelligence for all cities on our planet of cities 5. We Made It to Base Camp: a. We recognize that most of the Integral City Intelligences hardly know themselves as realities of the city let alone each other. This was an introduction to a new paradigm, a new language and a new lens for the city b. With the one month intensive now inside of us and this first report outside of us, we realize that we are just at Base Camp. This Conference has been a catalyst to change making conversations - offering a new way for us to appreciate the city, relate to it and grow with it c. As we move beyond Base Camp we will continue to use Inquiry as a cogenerative way to shape the future and co-design Operating System 2.0

What are you noticing is the relationship between the "I" of Spirit and the "WE" of Spirit in the city today? What kind of tensions are impacting individuals and groups? 2. How are we growing any sense of "collective intelligence" when we are challenged to stay present to the people we are physically with (say in Starbucks) when we seem more attracted to connect with virtual sanghas who seem more aligned to our values, aspirations and worldview? 3. How can we grow evolutionary inner capacities that resonate with higher values when the cultures in which we are immersed seem so chaotic and unaligned? What does it mean to develop a "relationship between care, intelligence, responsibility and spiritual awakening"? What practices do we need to create time and space for in the city so that can happen?

Carissa Wieler, Acting Executive Director of the Integral Ecology Center, located in Vancouver, Canada, sees that integral ecology holds many strands of nature awareness and intelligence to which she has been called from an early age. She has explored nature mysticism (through embodied practices and field technology), nature interiority (work with nature beings), natural sciences (biology, environmental science) and the social dimensions of working with the environment (natural resources management). She has also delved into understanding human nature through Integral Psychology (MA), holding the question of how to bridge psychology and ecology. To integral ecology, Carissa brings experience working with non-profit sustainability think tanks, an urban planning consultancy, research with the Pembina Institute for Appropriate Development, and sustainability indicators with the International Institute for Sustainable Development. Carissa is a long time volunteer in the Integral community, with significant responsibilities in coordinating 30 volunteers at Integral Theory Conferences.

Cindy Wigglesworth founded her own company, Deep Change, in 2000, where she is currently serving as President. She created, validated, and researched the first skills based Spiritual Intelligence Assessment, which allows people to develop spiritual intelligence skills by making a connection to beliefs and practices for each individual without using the language of religion. The assessment is both faith friendly and faith neutral, and can be used for both business and personal use. Spiritual intelligence is the ability to behave with wisdom and compassion, while maintaining inner and outer peace, regardless of the situation (Google Profiles). Cindy worked in human resource management at ExxonMobil. She is on the Working Council for the Tyson Center for Faith and Spirituality in the Workplace and former chair of the International Spirit at Work Awards Selection Committee. She is a founding member of Spirit in Business and has appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show. Cindy is an executive coach and public speaker.

He has worked as a professional city planner in Western Canada in the fields of regional planning, municipal affairs and islands planning/governance. Ian is a founding board member of the Council for Canadian Urbanism, an inaugural member of the Integral Institute, and a member of two 'communities of practice' - the Ginger Group Collaborative and Next Step Integral.

His current action research is focused on 'evolving professionalism - beyond the status quo', prospecting an integral form of planning that transcends and includes the best of pre-modern, modern and postmodern planning. Building on the social technologies of presencing and meshworking, Ian delivers workshops on praxis-making and ethos-making meshing the personal, the professional and the spiritual.

Ken Wilber is the world's leading integral philosopher. The author of such titles as A Brief History of Everything (1996) and A Theory of Everything (2000), his philosophy integrates body, mind, soul, and Spirit with self, culture, and nature.

Ken has written sixteen books exploring different facets of human development and cultural evolution. In 2000, he founded the Integral Institute to support and promote integral thinking. Ken has inspired both his own boomer generation and the generations who follow to help create connections between individuals and groups who are seeking to enact an integral vision in their day-to-day lives people yearning for true integration, genuine transformation, and whole-hearted communion.
