 Celebration MIA On this fifteenth anniversary of both the infamy and redress of New York’s 9/11 World Trade Center attack, I look around the world at the many days we set aside as celebrations and I am struck by a major omission.

Y2K ... 911 ... Hurricane Sandy ... What do they have in common? How did each of these events trigger evolutionary intelligences?  From the perspective of Integral City each of these events posed a global pain point that was/is matched by a glocal care response. Y2K was the computer software bug that threatened infrastructure communication [...]

The relevance of evolution intelligence to the whole field of city wellbeing influences how the city develops its purpose, identity, vision, values, cultural relationships and even its infrastructures. When a city can be aligned around core evolutionary values in an explicit way (like storytelling instead of non-inclusive city planning practices) it can more easily sustain quality of [...]

Evolutionary intelligence is the capacity to transcend and include the intelligences we currently demonstrate, in order to allow new intelligences to emerge. Evolutionary intelligence looks backward at our evolutionary history and forward to our evolutionary future. It assumes that life conditions will continue to change and the human species will change and adapt and evolve [...]

Many city information officers are now developing versions of vital signs monitor for monitoring and reporting the health of the city. From an eco-regional perspective the indicators should track what Jared Diamond noted every society must pay attention to for long-term survival: [...]
